Hi there,

This is a scheduled post today, as I am in Scotland at my son, Struan's graduation and then jumping down to Italy for a week to visit old friends tomorrow. I am sharing a card using the new Wild Rose Stamp Set 785 and sentiment from the Nasturtium 2 Set 783, from the June Reveal.

Bleached Wild Rose

To begin, I stamped the Wild Rose image in the four corners of the black cardstock square in Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail. The leaves and petals were "colored" using an Aqua Pen filled with bleach. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail and I just tore around the saying. I used three copper brads to attach to the center of the front.  Sheer gold ribbon was wrapped around the bottom left corner and was attached to the back of the panel. This was layered to Kraft cardstock, which was pierced.

A gold brad was dipped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. This was then wrapped around a little hand made bow and inserted through the ribbon to the back. The front panel was layered to black and finally to a white base to finish.

Hope you've enjoyed this quick share today.
