Red, Red Rose

Good morning. Happy Sunday.

Here is a card for 2 challenges: Crafty Creations - My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose and CES Challenges - Red and Romance.

The stamps used on this one are beautiful ones from Elusive Images. Both are from one of the collage A4 sheets.

The background was white card which was stamped with the gorgeous border stamp using Archival ink. This was over sprayed with two colours of red Glimmer mist and trimmed to size. It was matted onto silver mirror card which in turn was bonded to an A5 red base card.

The main image was stamped in Archival ink onto white glossy card. It was stamped again on another piece so the the rose flower could be cut out and decoupaged. The base image and the extra flower head  was coloured with thee green and three red Distress inks using a brush.When dry, the edges of the main image were tinted with Fired Brick ink. This was matted onto silver mirror card and a satin/organza ribbon wrapped around. This assembly was added to the card. The double bow was added with Pinflair glue to complete the card.
