Clearly Besotted Teasers | Just A Note

Hello there and welcome to day two of the August Clearly Besotted Teasers. For my card today, I am using the new I Do Day set. This is one of the smaller stamp sets and it consists of a beautiful rose image, along with some fabulous sentiments which would be perfect for a wedding day card. Since I didn't need a wedding card, I thought I would make a little note card with it.

I started off by creating the background for the rose. I took a panel of watercolour paper and die cut this using a SSS Stitched Rectangle die. I then smooshed various Distress Inks on to a palette (so that I could use them as watercolours) and taking a flat paintbrush and water, painted stripes on to the panel in rainbow colours. This was then set aside to dry.
Once dry, I stamped the rose image from the I Do Day Stamp Set on to this using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The panel was adhered to a 4" x 5.25" black card base with foam sheet and DST. I then took the sentiment from the Tiny Type set and stamped this on to a scrap of watercolour paper using the same black ink. This was added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Ice Cube Jewels.
