Cottage Rose Birthday

I needed to make some birthday cards and wanted to play with the Cottage Rose bundle.  This is a fabulous bundle and you know I love a stamp set that has images and sentiments.  The large rose is a beautiful flower and it is a fun one to color.  


I heat embossed the flower using Versamark ink and Black embossing powder on Shimmery White cardstock.  Why Shimmery White?  Shimmery White CS has a beautiful, delicate shimmer and it can be used for techniques using water.  I brushed on some water on the petals and then picked up some Sweet Sorbet ink with a Water Painter and touched it to the water.  The ink flows and spreads  coloring the petals.   I sometimes help the colors along with the Water Painter.  I like how it creates the light and dark on the petals.  It is a fun coloring technique. Once the flower was colored I cut it out using the coordinating die.  

The flower is mounted on a square cut using the largest Stylish Shapes square die.  The sentiment was stamped on a banner die also from the Stylish Shapes dies.  The Very Vanilla layer was embossed using the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder and then mounted on a Basic Black card base.  The Timeworn Type Embossing Folder is now my go to folder when I need a little texture.


Inside of the card I stamped and colored the leaf image from the stamp set.  I also added another sentiment.
