A Wild Rose Thank You – Weekend Challenge – A Simple Sketch

This week’s Weekend Challenge to keep you stamping is another Simple Sketch.  Keep it simple or add a little more.  The choice is yours.  I chose to use the Global Design Project – GDP285 colors.

A new Stampin’ Up! catalog is launching in May and several favorite products have been retired to make way for the new.  Alas, the stamp set, To A Wild Rose, is one of them.  I just had to use it today!

Sketch (Card) Elements:

Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored @ 4¼”) Very Vanilla

Accent Back Panels: (4⅛” x 5⅜”), (2⅛” x 4⅞”), (1⅝” x 4⅛”) Sahara Sand (optional)

Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Seaside Spray dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Rectangle Panels: (2” x 4¾”) and (1½” x 4”) Very Vanilla.  The larger rectangle was dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and the smaller rectangle was dry embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Sentiment Strip: (1½” x ½”) Seaside Spray 2019/2021 in-Color Designer Series Paper piece.  The sentiment, Thanks, from the Here’s A Card stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and heat set with White Embossing Powder.  I chose to put the small sentiment here instead of a ribbon bow.

Focal Image(s):  Using the Clear Color Embossing Technique, I stamped the Rose and the Leaf in to Versamark ink and then stamped the Rose in to Crushed Curry ink and the Leaf in to Basic Gray ink.  These images were then stamped on to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  The images were then coated with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set giving me a colored embossed outline for water coloring.  Using the fine-tipped Water Painter and So Saffron ink and Sahara Sand ink, I water colored the images.  After they were dry, the images were die-cut with the coordinating Wild Rose Dies.  I considered the oval shape as a suggestion.

All the elements were arranged on the card base to match the sketch.  I added Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots to the bottom right and added Wink of Stella Glitter to the Rose.  So very pretty in real life but doesn’t show so well in the photograph.

A very simple sketch that was jazzed up with lots of texture and die-cuts instead of my usual fussy cutting.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
