Miss You Rose

Serendipity Stamps, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Miss You Card

I'm taken by how GORGEOUS this rose image is!  So, you can imagine my delight when the wonderful folks at Serendipity Stamps asked me to join them this August as Guest Designer.  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!



Each month the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog posts a new challenge.  This month, the challenge is to create a CAS card with the theme "I Miss You".  Sure hope you'll join in on the fun.  Head on over to the blog for some FABULOUS Design Team inspiration!

To make my CAS "I Miss You" card, I stamped this beautiful "Rose" image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I stippled Distress Ink Scattered Straw onto the cardstock, as well as lightly misted some Gold Shimmer Spritz from Tsukineko. 

The sentiment, "Miss You (small)", is also from Serendipity Stamps and was stamped with Versafine Onxy Black. 

I framed the image panel with black cardstock, and placed at a slight angle onto a white card base.  I attached a small loop of gold ribbon along the side of the card.

I truly enjoyed the process of coloring this image and making this card.  Thanks to Serendipity Stamps for the invitation!  Please join us on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog for all of the fun. 

I'll be back with another card later this month for Serendipity Stamps, and you can bet that I'll be choosing to use this gorgeous rose again!

You've created a beautiful card. I've made a note, too, of the method you used to fill some of the white space and hope to use it in the future. I'm always at a loss of how to 'finish' a card with a strong focal point without detracting from the image. No doubt I've seen this done before but it never registered with me as it did today. Thanks so much!
