I've been colouring more roses from the Tea Together stamp set, but this time using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers for a different look. I chose Petal Pink to coordinate with the beautiful Petal Pink Vellum from the Floral Romance Speciality Designer Paper.
I've covered the entire front of my Whisper White card base with the vellum. My preferred method is to use a sponge to lightly dab on a scant amount of Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I put a squiggle of glue onto the Silicone Mat and then pick up a little with the sponge and dab it around the edges. Lightly press the vellum onto the card base for an invisible finish.
I've used one of the new Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies to cut the centre panel and added some extra interest with the lovely floral embossing die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies in opposite corners. This provides a background to my Petal Pink roses that were cropped with the co-ordinating die from the Tea Time Framelits, which is one of the Level 2 Sale-a-bration FREE products available for you to choose when you place and order of $180.
The greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set was stamped in Mint Macaron ink and I've used the Soft Sea Foam and Light Mint Macaron Blends on the leaves of the roses as well. I finished with a trio of Calypso Coral enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms pack for some extra pop. You can see the detail in the lovely needlepoint embossing die in this closeup.
For the inside I have added a Grapefruit Grove mat for the writing panel and a narrow strip of the Petal Pink vellum was added at the base. In the top right corner, I've used the floral embossing die as a background to the smaller flower, also from the Tea Together stamp set.
