Rose Red...

Good morning all, Jen here today. Hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend so far. I have another coloured digi stamp for you today, this time it's Rose Red again by Saturated Canary.
Isn't she just gorgeous? She absolutely needed a big dramatic card lol. I started with the image and coloured her in using Flexmarkers and Promarkers. I also used a little bit of Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Ink in red to highlight parts of her dress and her lips. It gives a lovely shimmery finish that has hints of blue in it.

Once coloured I cut around the image and then stuck it to the largest of the Resplendent Rectangle shapes cut from white Centura Pearl card.  I layered this on to red mirror card which I embossed with the Flower Power embossing folder and then layered this on to more white Centura Pearl embossed with the same folder. I embossed an 8x8 inch white card blank with the Regency Swirls folder and then cut a piece of red card slightly smaller than the blank and embossed this one too.

I put all of the layers together and then added some red and white flowered ribbon down each side. Then I made up a few flowers in white, red and black, using my new quilling die, this one is called Blissful and some rolled flowers too. I also added in some ready made felt flowers and some leaf flourishes cut in black Centura Pearl card.

I arranged the flowers around the top right side and then added three little mirror embellishments to the bottom left for balance. Then I tied a big bow using three different ribbons and added it to the left side.

I am really pleased with how this one turned out :o)) Hope you like it too.
Take care and I'll see you soon.
