Vintage Roses

Hello there, if you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that I was making this card yesterday. It was a first for me in many ways. I used this Vintage Roses set by Altenew for the first time, I also used my MISTI for the first time too. I didn't have a try before I actually stamped on the cardstock so It really was a bit of an experiment.

I first took a panel of white cardstock and then stamped the roses (I stamped one and then masked it off before stamping the second one) using various shades of blue HA Shadow inks. I masked off the second rose and then stamped the leaves, using two shades of HA Shadow Inks and one PTI ink.
I then took the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages set and stamped this on a separate piece of cardstock. This was added to the panel with clear foam tape and I embellished with a few Pretty pink Posh sequins.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

As you can see, I didn't line everything up properly. I should have practiced first really but in a way this was my practice. I didn't think it was too bad though so I did make it in to a card. This wouldn't be one I would send to a fellow stamper but I doubt a non-stamper would notice (well I hope not anyway!). As always, thanks so much for visiting me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous, Michelle!! Love the ink colors you chose and the touches of sequin details. And I think the beauty of these multi-step stamp sets is that they don't have to be lined up perfectly in order to look stunning. You did an amazing job!

  8. Your card is lovely. I really like the color palette you've used, too. Anyone would be happy to receive this card. :)
