Rockin Quick Cards Rose...

Today I have a card from Fleurette Bloom to share with you. I've been slacking, lol. But I saw this rose in her store and have never made it and it is sooooo pretty!!! I hope you will like it as well. Here is how I made it.

I used my Sizzix Eclips2 and Ecal software to open the file for the rose from the Rockin Quick Cards set. I created two, one a little smaller than the other. Adjusted the sizes to fit the front of an A2 card. 
After cutting, I took the outline layer and smooshed it really good with my Versamark Ink pad and covered with platinum embossing powder by Ranger and heat set it. Then glued it to the base layer. I used a spray adhesive cause it's really thin. Next time I'll use some Stick-It adhesive to the back before cutting.

Now that you have that together, the outline layer almost acts like a dam of sorts. Easy for coloring. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I chose to pinks and a green. I put the color down and used my Wink of Stella to blend.

I went back and forth with my colors trying to get some shaded areas. I'm not so good with those markers yet, but I'm working on it, lol. 

I choose coordinating cardstock and layered it with some printed woodgrain paper from the Woodgrains set. I used the whitewash medium. LOVE this paper!!! I stamped my sentiment and used clear embossing powder for some shine. I cut the layers using some rectangle dies I have from Lawn Fawn. I used foam tape for a bit of dimension and adhered the layers. Then I placed my roses where I liked them and used foam squares for those as well. 

I scattered around some sequins and enamel hearts for added interest and sparkle. I love how this card came out! The possibilities are endless! I can see some really nice watercolor background and then put the outline layer on. You could also break the image apart in the software and inlay the pieces like a puzzle and have a flat card. I want to try that too! 

Thanks Fleurette, for such a cute set! Can't wait to make all of these.
So, there you have it. Really an easy card that has a big wow factor to it. You'll definitely wow your friends with this one!
