Anyways, on to my card:
We made this card for card class in June. I just love the soft, subtle color palette. It is very comforting to me. Here are the colors I used on this card:
I took the colors from the Specialty Designer Series Paper, Tea Room. This is such beautiful paper. It is thinner than our regular DSP so it doesn't add a lot of bulk to your card and it has so many beautiful prints. I used just a small strip of the DSP, but it adds some color and contrast to the card.
I also used the Delicate Lace Edgelits. Aren't these just beautiful? I love being able to add a pretty trim to my cards and these edgelits do just that. There are three different dies in the set. Click here to see a few more ways you can use these edgelits.
To create the different colors in the rose, I first stamped the whole image with Crushed Curry ink. Then, before stamping, I took a sponge dauber and randomly inked around the rose with Mango Melody ink. I then stamped the rose onto my card stock.
I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink. Aren't they just beautiful? I love these DistINKtive stamps that Stampin' Up! has come out with. They are stamps made from a photo so you get a very realistic looking image. Just gorgeous!
We also decorated the inside of the card with a sentiment and other images from the stamp set, Healing Hugs. I love a little something on the inside of my cards. It just adds that special touch.
