My Beautiful Rose

Today I have my March DT sample for Gecko Galz to share.
I wanted a mix of textures for this card yet for the overall effect to be pretty and to bring thoughts of walking through a garden at the height of Spring, the sun shines, the birds sing their songs and there is the scent of roses in the air.mybeautifulroselynne

Gecko Galz In My Easter Bonnet 1
Crafty Individuals Postcard stamp
Canvas printer paper
Corrugated cardboard
Martha Stewart Paint
Golden Gesso
Golden Gel Medium
Versafine Vintage Sepia
Distress Paint Tattered Rose
Paper doilies, 7”x5” cardbase, paperclay roses, metal frame, paper roses, fabric, lace and burlap

I like the effect from printing onto canvas printer paper.11 March 002A cluster of flowers and teeny pieces of lace and fabric.11 March 004

In Pic Monkey isolate this In My Easter Bonnet image, remove border and re-size. Print onto canvas printer paper, abrade edges and apply Distress Paint.
Tear corrugated cardboard to size of cardbase. Distress. Paint with Gesso followed by Martha Stewart paint. Adhere to cardbase.
Layer the image onto the cardbase with paper doilies (lightly apply Distress Paint) and embellish with the paper roses, paperclay rose, burlap, lace, torn paper, etc.
Stamp postcard onto found paper. Tear and tuck behind the cluster of flowers.
At top edge staple torn fabric and embellish with a metal frame and paperclay rose.

I have no doubt that the eagle-eyed amongst you spotted something very obvious on the card so I will hold my hands up and declare that I had to photograph the card before the silicone glue had dried. You see it don’t you, the drooping paperclay rose on the metal frame at the top of the card! After photographing I straightened it and it has dried successfully.  That’s what happens when you leave DT samples until the Eleventh Hour LOL.

Thank you for taking the time to visit this post.

    You’re in the mood for roses at the moment, aren’t you, Lynne. And nothing wrong with that! This card, droopy rose and all, is beautiful.

    Lynne, you surely succeeded in reaching the effect you wanted to create.
    It is Spring and it’s romantic, soft, sunny, pretty and I can almost hear the birds sing and smell the roses :-))
    What a wonderful creation this is!!! Indeed gives printing on this canvas paper a beautiful soft result (never tried this).
    How I love this kind of work.
    Thanks for telling how you did all this.
