I hope those of you who could enjoyed my shows over the last couple of days as much as I enjoy making them! Today finds me in Darlington at Franki's Craft. Coffee and Chat for 2 days of workshops.
As today is Colouring Saturday I thought I would share this card as on the stamp release posts I only showed the sentiment section! I have to say I am really happy how these red red roses have come out ( I really think these are so red they are red red lol)
Reds - 10, 15 and orange 22 ( to make the red shine) followed by warm grey in 1 and 3.
I used the 2 colours of grey to highlight the flourishes on the corners using the lighter grey to highlight the design.
I used the frame stamp from the set in the centre and added one of the sentiments from the set in the centre. I then coloured the roses and flourishes in the same colours. I cut this out using one of the double pierced rectangles and matted this in red and black as I felt the colouring could take the drama!
I made up the card as shown using the noble double pierced square dies its A and B to make the frame with the thin red band.
I then added a dramatic bow in black ribbon from my stash along with three red roses from the Craft Consortium always and forever range and a couple of stick pins.
