Beccy's Place Thinking of You


I have been a follower of Beccy’s Place for a long time and am therefore lucky to have collected a large number of free images. I am however ashamed to admit that upto now I have only ever coloured one in L I keep intending to join in the monthly challenges and never seem to get round to it so I made a special effort for this one. The challenge this month is to use any floral image from Beccy’s Place.

The one I have used was a freebie (still available!) and I have based the colours of red and black on the roses vellum background which is a very deep red with black in it. I coloured the rose on the image/sentiment to match and created many layers for the vellum base and the image. I used Fiskars punch to create the layered element on the left hand side and added some ribbon and a bow. I added 2 gems to the corners and declared it finished. I added some glossy accents to the flower and leaves but not sure that you can see it very well in the photo.

I am trying to get myself better organised and have created a schedule which should allow be to be better focused on what needs making and when. I like to have a balance between DT work but also with other projects I want to work on and thus far my list is allowing me to be more structured with my creativity and get more projects done. Time will tell if this continues……

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-
Card size – DL Letter
Paper – Red Rose Vellum by Artoz
Tools – Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Fiskars Punch
Embellishments – Glossy Accents, gems from Dovecraft, ribbon by Papermania, ribbon bow recycled from an old Christmas Card

Techniques – Punching, recycling

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

It's such a beautiful image and I like the effect of the script behind it. I love the rich red colors, and the long rectangular shape adds to the elegant feel of your card. Such a sweet, clean, yet decorative card - spotted it on MIM!
