I've had a lot of fun creating the same two stamp sets these past few days...I think I need to revisit all my stamp sets and do the same. I'm playing along with the Winnie & Walter Share the Love featuring Essentials By Ellen Day Four Transparent Challenge.
I started by heat embossing in gold onto vellum a series of roses from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and Extras Stamp Set. I fussy cut them and then on the back I colored with various shades of pink and blush alcohol markers. I then die cut a banner from vellum and heat embossed in gold a sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen's 12 Days Companion Greetings Stamp Set. Once I had the arrangement finalized for my card, I drew some stems with a Versamark Pen and then heat embossed in gold as well.
I was able to adhered the roses and the banner with a light touch of glue onto vanilla cardstock. I felt that the card needed a bit more detail, so I splattered some watered down glue onto this panel, then heat embossed the splatters with gold embossing powder. I finished the card by adding the sentiment banner and adhered the panel onto a matching vanilla card base.
