Hero Arts Antique Rose Congrats

This stamp set from Hero Arts reminded me of some of the flowers my grandmother had in her garden.  I think the antique rose makes a beautiful card.

I began by stamping the image from Hero Arts Antique Rose onto 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It was colored using Copic Markers RV11, RV13, RV15; YG95, YG97, YG99.  I then placed the image on my Silhouette PIXScan Mat and cut around it using the Cameo.

To create a visual background for the image an oval was cut using My Favorite Things Pierced Oval STAX and ink blended with Distress Tumbled Glass Ink using the Inkylicious Ink Bending Brush to create a soft sky color to the oval.  Another oval was cut out of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and trimmed to be slightly smaller than the ink blended oval and attached to the back. The rose cutout was then adhered to the oval using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

To enhance the pink in the rose an A2 top folding cardbase was made from pink cardstock that I had in my stash.  A rectangle of white 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock was cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and adhered to the pink cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Then the oval was attached using the same glue to the back of the fun foam.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Congrats and was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and an additional three time from scraps of white cardstock.  All were adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and then the word was adhered to the bottom of the focal image with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  To add a little sparkle, Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flower and the card was done.
