Another Petal Palette Creation!

As I was getting ready to write today’s post, it occurred to me that I have used the Petal Palette stamp set or full bundle on a LOT of recent projects.  I guess I really like it!

Today’s card features the roses from the Petal Palette set.  I stamped them in Basic Black archival ink and then watercolored them with Brusho.  For this project, I did not sprinkle the crystals on the cardstock and then add water.  I sprinkled them on a clear block, added water to mix, and THEN colored the image, as I wanted to keep the color within the lines!  Once it was dry, I cut it with the coordinating die from the Petals & More Thinlits.  (Don’t forget, you can purchase both the stamp set and the thinlits together as a bundle for a savings of 10%!)

The Brusho colors that I used on the flowers are Brilliant Red and Gamboge.  The leaves were watercolored with Lemon Lime Twist, as I wanted them to coordinate with the middle layer and trellis looking die cut on the right.  That die is also from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I love the contrast of the bright colors against the black and white!

For the background, I used a brand new embossing folder called Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It really looks like a bunch of different sized sequins scattered across the paper!  Here’s a close up of the impressions:

All of these products are from the Occasions Catalog and are now available in the online store!  Time to get my boys fed and out the door for school!  Happy Friday!  🙂
