Brand Ambassador - Pure Florals - Rose

Welcome, it's Julie here with some Brand Ambassador inspiration for you.

I love the Pure Florals Rose stamps, they are great to colour with either Copics or with watercolours, but for this card I decided to leave the single bloom uncoloured after seeing this card on Pinterest.

I first created the background by inking through the Wonky Stripes stencil with Altenew Silverstone ink onto an A6 panel of white card, keeping the edges soft. I then die cut a panel of hearts from vellum A couple of the rose leaves were stamped on white card and I used inks to colour in a watercolour effect using blue greens to match with the stenciled background, before fussy cutting. The stamped small rose was fussy cut and I die cut some leaves from the same white card. The cluster of hearts behind the rose is a die, cut  from a piece of vellum. 
On a strip of white card, I had previously inked with the same Silverstone ink, I stamped the Always and Forever sentiment, from the Always and Forever set, in black.
Once I had everything ready, I started to assemble my card, keeping the bloom to the right of middle of the panel, adding the sentiment strip across the bottom of the rose. Always tricky to attach vellum to a project with out the glue showing through, I only added glue behind the leaves and bloom, sort of trapping it between flower cluster and background.

Finally I popped the finished panel up on foam pads over a 5 x 7 white base card. 

I designed this card for my daughter whose TA is getting married next month but after seeing the finished card, she decided it needed some bling adding and she preferred it without the border so here is the card she took away.

So that's all from me for this month. Hope I have inspired you to dig out your pretty flora stamps and have a go and see back here soon.
