Stylized Roses -- A Favorite!



This beautiful stamp is a Technique Junkie April Release -- Stylized Roses - http://techniquejunkies.com/stylized-roses/. I love this stamp - it is so pretty and soooo easy to color. 

But I am sad to say that the ribbon truly matches the rose in real life when it scanned it didn't.

This technique of stamping an image sideways is from the Technique Junkie newsletter in the February March issue called  Diagonal Images.

But I do not have just one card for you today -- I have several, so sit back and Enjoy! 
Everyone  seems to like blue roses -- so this is my attempt.  I used black Versafine ink and detail black embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I painted the roses and leaves with Twinkling H2O's.  The pale blue sky is done with the Copic Air Brush System - set 2.  I used an embossing folder with blue card stock but it was too just blue for me -- does that make any sense?  So I rubbed  some green metallic rub-ons over the raised dry embossed areas.   Various layers of papers and card stock are used used to add visual interest.



This was an experiment.  I used some heavier card stock I sprayed water all over and then squirted 3 different colors of Color Burst powder.   I used my heat tool and dried it before stamping the rose on the paper. The paper with the bird cages was white with the gold cages and I burnished color all over that matched the pink in the of the "roses" and the base card stock. Lots of layering once again.

My Dad was from Texas -- and so a yellow rose of Texas is good. These are just water colored, and highlights of rust were added.   Gold ribbon over a dry embossed script panel, highlighted with gold rub-ons was added.  The verse if Technique Junkie stamps Seeds of Today - http://techniquejunkies.com/seeds-of-today/ which is heat embossed with gold powder.   And of course lots of layers add interest.

This is a disappointing scan but somewhat expected.  The funny looking strips on the left  are very shiny metallic gold.  And the verse is Technique Junkie Stamps Kindness Matters - http://techniquejunkies.com/kindness-matters/.   I used clear embossing powder over the Versamark stamped image. Then I burnished the color over that with sponges.  Then while my stamp was still in the MISTI, I reinked it with black Stazon and it stamped black so it showed up a bit better.


 These roses were colored with my Copic Markers, I used lots of layers of card stock and some glimmer paper.  Since there were so many butterflies in the background -- I used Technique Junkie Stamps Butterfly Kisses - http://techniquejunkies.com/butterfly-kisses/.



 And my very last card for today is this one!  The roses are stamped with black Memento ink and water colored.  And the sky is just water colored as well.  It was layered on a scrap of background paper and then layered on a black panel which was dry embossed and highlights added with gold rub-ons.



So here you are -- lots of roses from Technique Junkie Stamps.  The same stamp -- so many different ways to use it.  Pat Huntoon showed us more here - http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/2016/04/tj-inkspirations-my-rose-garden.html  .  Kathy Stacy had a post here -- https://craftynurse4u.wordpress.com/2016/04/13/live-love-laugh/. 

Have you decided you must have this by now?  

Have a great day and get inky!

Beautiful work. I love seeing cards done in different ways. I particularly love the colour burts and must give it a try.
