Hello - English Rose

Good morning, I hope you are having a good start to the week. I start my new job today, so a little nervous but looking forward to getting back to work, after the uncertainty of the last few weeks.

Today's card is one I made when I was having a play with ink colours and water colouring. It's one of those cards that I made just because I wanted too and not because I needed it lol. So I really enjoyed making this one.

I started with some watercolour card and our Zig Clean Colour Markers, and made a very soft watercolour background. Then I added thin score tape down the side and put some gold foil over the top.

The flowers are from the Clearly Besotted English Rose set and are stamped with Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Altenew Crisp Dye inks. The leaves are stamped with, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen and Jet Black, Altenew inks.

I arranged them on my watercolour panel and then added another strip of foil to the pink card base. 

Some double sided sticky tape and more foil was perfect to cut the Simon Says Stamp, Painted Hello sentiment with. Then I added a ton of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the flowers and a few gold glitter enamel dots to finish it off.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
