Red Roses

I have to precede this post by saying this card is sooooo not my style! But since I made it, I guess I really shouldn't say that, huh? LOL!

The image is a new one from Hero Arts called Garden Roses .

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.
The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I did the shading using a blender pen.

The yellow embellishment on the left side is Bumblebee Paper Frills . They are great decorative borders in 12" strips. Great for adding a little touch of color here and there!

The red cardstock is Classic Red Prismatic by Prism Papers. The texture on these papers is simply fabulous, and the colors are so rich!

To complete the card I used three Robin's Nest Dew drops from the Flame bottle. The ribbon is May Arts Yellow 3/4" Grosgrain .

The Hero Arts sale continues at Stamper's Dream tomorrow. ALL Hero Arts stamps are on sale for 20% off! Even the Hero Arts stamps that are on sale will be discounted an additional 20% if you use coupon code MY HERO. The sale ends Sunday night, so don't delay!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be back tomorrow with something new!

I would say that lovely cards ARE your style! And this one certainly all the little details; ribbon, dew drops, and frills. TFS: Tinla

not your style? everything you create is your style :) I think this is quite beautiful, and I LOVE that little yellow border of circles! The combination of yellow and red really does work for me, now that I've seen this card:)
