My SIL (#3) was another in the birthday bonanza of September. She is a soft and beautiful soul, so the rose was perfect for her. This is the result....
I used the Manhattan Rose embossing folder to emboss the Vellum and then layered the rose with some leaves from "A Rose is a Rose" stamp set to add a bit of interest. The depth and variation of colour you get with the rose and this technique is magical.
And a couple of obligatory close ups!!!
If you haven't tried this technique, why not give it ago. It's the kind of thing where no two are going to be the same, and if you do an aray of colours...and get caught short for a quick card, it may be what you need.
Thanks for popping by.
