ROSE BACKGROUND MOTHER’S DAY CARD

If you follow me for some time you may know that I’m a big fan on monochromatic cards. I like the look of them in general, not speaking of taking the color combo decisions totally out of decision making 🙂

Rose Background Mothers Day Card. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

To make the rose background I embossed a pink cardstock panel using the Rose Bellevue 3D Embossing Folder.

After that, I colored it using Crimson Woodless Watercolor Pencil. The coloring technique I used is very simple. Half “work” was already done before I even started coloring – the textured design was created by the embossing folder and base color was already there as I used non white cardstock.

All I needed to do is to pretty much trace the embossed design with the pencil and then wash it out with a damp brush.

I also added red watercolor splatters to add more interest to the background.

To make the sentiment I used the Family Matters Stamp Set, white embossing words onto a red cardstock and cutting them into sentiment label. Which after that were foam mounted onto the background.

The panel was foam mounted onto a white card base, which finished off the card.

This card was relatively quick and easy to make. The coloring part did take some time, but it still less than many other techniques.
