WWYS #64: Rose Wonder

Hello, hello! Happy Monday and welcome back to another fabulous week of What Will You Stamp?! This week we are featuring a really popular set called Rose Wonder. You're probably looking at my card and thinking, "So, where's the rose?" That's right, I didn't use it. I opted for this beautiful leaf stamp instead. Along with many amazing sentiments the leaves are one of the many stamps that come in the Rose Wonder set. First I heat embossed my stamp (3x) onto water color paper. Then I used my aqua painter paint the background in Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. 

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves and I just love the subtle beauty that the WOS added to the leaves. I used the clear epoxy accent stickers to add a little texture without distracting too much from the leaves. I am so bummed these clear accent stickers are retiring as I just love them.

After mounting my image piece onto Basic Gray cardstock I thought it needed just a little something more... but something really subtle and barely there. I figured out a way to use the Silver Metallic Thread to make a fun border for my image and I am happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

Here's another shot of the front of the card. This angle shows the glimmer from the Wink of Stella better than the first image I posted. Honestly, and I swear I am NOT tooting my own horn, this card is really beautiful in person. These pictures do not do it justice.

Well, a pretty card should have a pretty inside too, right?! So I tried something that I haven't tried before and it was fun! I squeezed my Bermuda Bay ink pad to get some ink in the lid. Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella to pick up just a little bit of the ink and I basically used the Wink of Stella brush tip to paint in these leaves. The color is very subtle. It doesn't look quite like the vibrant Bermuda Bay that I am used to but it is so pretty and of course the whole thing sparkles! This technique was so easy to do and the ink came right of the Wink of Stella brush tip (it didn't ruin it and it writes clear again). I will certainly be doing this again.

If you haven't seen it already here's what the whole Rose Wonder stamp set looks like. It's pretty fantastic and I love the many sentiments and the lovely font.
