Rose Bud on Kraft.

I had this piece of kraft paper over from making the card in the post below and suddenly realised it would be perfect for Darnell's Birthaversary Bash Challenge. I needed to get my skates on though as #8 is about to close. Yipes! Ok so Darnell is asking us to use coloured pencils on Kraft card + NBUS (Never before used Schtuff) either brand new or hoarded and untouched.

Here's what I came up with. Very simples cos not much time with the bathroom refit and  next doors BT capers.

Used Raspberry cardstock to make the base up.  Shinny schtuff is Xcut Adhesive metal effect sheet (the hoarded unused item) cut to fit card. Piece of green card adhered on top  and then lastly the Kraft card rounded with my Xcut  corner chomper.  The stamp is brand new only came last week and is called 'Rose Bud' by Art Impressions. I stamped it up using my versamark inkpad and then embossed with holographic embossing powder by Papermania. Pencils used are my Derwent water colour and I just used  3 colours, rose, green and white. I did smooth the rose bud out and the green leaf with a dampened paint brush as it was difficult to spread the colour over the embossing powder which has a bit of a scratchy feel but looks faboulous IRL. Sentiment is NBUS too from a Woodware Poppy set of stamps. Job done. 
More escapades with the bathroom refit which I will tell on another post. 


 Hugs

Beautiful rosebud and the shine on the card is lovely. The embossing powder is really pretty. Can't wait to hear the next installment of bath refit and BT issue. I'm still laughing over the stolen cistern!

This is so elegant, Mrs. A! The rose is colored and showcased precisely as a stately rose should be!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #8!! (PS I am reading about the bathroom / neighbor antics even though I may not have time to comment, so keep 'em coming! You are a balm for the soul!!) Hugs, Darnell

This is such a lovely card, Valery Ann. I think your new stamp is so pretty and I am loving the white sort of accent around it to emphasize the beautiful flower!
