The Purple Rose

It is time for a new challenge over at Crafting with an Attitude and this month our sponsor is Morgan’s Artworld. The prize is 3 images and the theme is Anything Goes. So pop over and link your project up.
For my project I used the image “Valentine” Single Rose. I printed it out through Silhouette Studio onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper and colored it up with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I love purple roses and so that is what this one became.

Once I had completed the coloring I used Silhouette Studio to trace the image and to merge the cutout with a heart shape so that only the one edge of the rose cut and the rest of the heart shape. I also cut out the card front at 4.25×5.5 to make it a complete card front.

I recently had seen a technique used by my IG friend Kelly to edge the outline with a colored marker and so I did that to the inside of the heart cutout. I edged it with a purple Crayola marker.

I glued the card front to a cardbase and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added three purple sequins to add the final pop to the card.

Daler-Rowney Drawing paper
Reflections 110lb heavyweight cardstock
Power Poppy Daffodils stampset (sentiment)
Prismacolor colored pencils
Versafine Onyx black ink
Clear embossing powder
Purple Crayola marker

  1. Love that clever use of an outline heart, really gives the appearance of a die cut without adding the extra layer. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges.
