The focal image of my card is from the Rose stamp set from Stacy Stamps. It is a diagonal stamp that reaches from corner to corner which I colored with Distress Ink Markers, including Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mustard Seed. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and then blended the marker colors within the rose shape using my Tim Holtz Water Brush from Ranger. After the watercolor was dry, I touched each with a little gold and sparkle to really make them shine.
For the background, I cut the largest stitched rectangle from the Blueprints 13 Die-namics from My Favorite Things, and topped it with a metallic card stock embossed with the Daisy Flourish Embossing Folder by Crafts Too! I then attached the Roses cut with Joy! Foam Pads-Large, and tucked a die-cut tag of the state underneath with The Yellow Rose of Texas printed on it. To complete the card, I tied a piece of twine around the Panhandle and added a couple of the Poinsettia Dew Drops by the Robin's Nest for accent.
I hope you are inspired by my fellow design team members to create an entry to our weekly challenge. We would love to see what you create.
