My happy news is that I was asked by the very talented Mona Pendleton to be part of the design team for the CR84FN color challenge. I love my color challenges and was very excited to be participating in a weekly color challenge again.
Here is my card for CR84FN9:
Background: Stamp lightly Hero Arts - Old Letter Writing S4878 using Memento Rich Cocoa. Sponge edges using Ranger Distress Inks Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet.
Sponge doily edges with the same dye inks. Fold the doily and tie with ribbon accent with stick pin and charm.
The roses (Hero Arts - Rose Background CG179) took a little time. Stamp the rose background stamp using Versafine black pigment ink multiple times. Color using three different watercolor pencils (pink, peach, yellow) and a water brush. Color leaves using light tan watercolor pencil. Cut out the roses and leaves. Sponge around the edges with vintage photo dye ink. Accent with glitter. Arrange your bouquet of roses. :)
Stamp the lovely Verses Oh the Dances - RR0408 - C using Versafine Vintage Sepia and emboss using Zing Chestnut embossing powder.
The other stamps are Hero Arts - Rose Background CG179, Hero Arts - .
Here is the beautiful inspiration photos... Now you can see why I picked the roses to play with in my card.
