Rose Wonder Watercolored Birthday Card

Yesterday I played with the Rose Wonder stamp and coordinating thinlet dies and made it into a birthday card.

I used the thinlet die of the large rose and die cut the image using gold foil paper.  The resulting die cut was then adhered to a piece of 5 by 3 3/4" piece of Watercolor paper.

Then using reinkers and an Aqua painter filled with water, I colored the rose.  The colors I used:  Rose Red, Claypso Coral, Pink Pirouette for the flower, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow for the leaves. A small amount of these reinkers were placed in a paint palette.

I began by applying a generous amount of water to a small area of the flower using the Aqua painter.  Then, again, using the aqua painter, a small amount of the Pink Pirouette reinker was picked up and applied very lightly to the wet surface, letting the water spread the color.  To darken certain areas, I applied Calypso coral or Rose Red reinker using the same method.  I made the center of the rose darker than the outer petals.  After the ink was dry I brushed on Wink of Stella glitter.



The leaves were coloured the same way.  After water was applied with the brush, some Pear Pizzazz was dropped onto the leaves, and Mossy Meadow applied to darken certain areas.

The watercoloured image was allowed to dry overnight, and then I cut the image out, and adhered it to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  This was layered with Sahara Sand cardstock, and then the Rose Red base.

The sentiment was stamped embossed with gold embossing powder, trimmed down, the corners rounded with the corner rounder punch, and layered with gold foil paper.  It was adhered to the top part of the card.  Some tiny flowers were punched from the left over gold foil paper and added to the card front. Rhinestones were placed in the center of the flowers.

The number "40" was die cut was a retired alphabet die set using Rose Red paper.  Gold Wink of Stella glimmer was applied to this after it was attached to the card front.
