Crackling Rose

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I have started up a new challenge blog called Emerald City Crafts Challenge Blog
It is a monthly challenge blog and starts on the 7th July 2017 at 8.00 am.

I hope that you can hop along and welcome the new design team and follow too!
Don't forget to grab the blog badge and add to your blog too!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Today's card is made using this beautiful stamp from Chocolate Baroque

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square base card.
2. Matted and layered green matte card.
3. I stamped the rose onto watercolour card with Versafine Spanish Moss then embossed with clear embossing powder. 
4. To colour the image I use Zig clean colour brush pens and then once dry went over with Wink of Stella in clear to create a shine, I then used a Copic marker pen around the image.
5. To finish off I added green and yellow splats and a birthday sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments #180 - AG plus a Sentiment
Through the Purple Haze #125 - Anything Goes
Colour Crazy Challenge #20 - Anything Goes
Allsorts #416 - Happy Birthday
TTCRD - Anything Goes
