Look at this beauty!!! You can do this technique in any color you wish for that stunning look! Let’s get started!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Sponge Dauber, Rose Garden Framelits, Big Shot, Die Brush, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Rose Wonder Stamp Set

To get started, you will need to take a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and run it through the Big Shot with the rose image from the Rose Garden Framelits. Once that is die cut, you can use the Die Brush to pop it out of the framelit, pop out all the little pieces and get all the little “hairs” off. Now using the leftover outline of the image as a template, place it on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. You can place it on there half off or in any corner. It is all up to you. Then with a Sponge Dauber and your color choice, POUNCE the ink onto your card. You won’t want to rub or brush because it could make your template move. For this sample, I used Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Rose Red for the flower. Just add the color all around and stop at the breaking point of the leaves and flower. It is okay if some spots look darker than others. The variation in color really looks fabulous once it is all complete. Now that you are done adding color to the cardstock, I then took the Wink of Stella Brush and added glitter to the entire rose.

Then you can add the die cut rose. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the rose on. This is the perfect glue!! Now you can add any greeting that you would like. I really think this card is perfect for all occasions! I used the Rose Wonder Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 15%). I stamped the frame and greeting in Basic Black and die cut it with the Rose Garden Framelits! I added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Love it!!!
