With Gratitude

Hello there, I am back! Since I was unable to take part in the  Clearly Besotted November teasers, throughout the next week or so, I will be sharing my cards using the new stamps and dies. Today I am starting off with the new Merci Beaucoup set.
 

I first took a piece of Ranger watercolour paper (this is the same as the TH one but in larger sheets) and stamped the rose image on to it using Versamark ink. I then applied WOW! Bright White embossing powder on to it and heat set. The image was then water coloured using the Gansai Tambi paints.
 

Once dried, I added a few little spots of clear Wink of Stella. I added a strip of paper from the MFT Fresh Squeezed Chevron paper pad to the bottom of a white A2 card base. I then wanted a blue strip but I did not have any card or paper to match the blue in the flower. I took a strip of watercolour paper and then added the paint on to it, followed by clear WOS. This was then added on to the card. The image panel was added on top with foam sheet.
