Springtime Foils & Petal Passion

Hello, Crafters.

If a colour shouts out Spring, yellow shouts the loudest! 

It isn't one of my colours, but as I look at my card I ask, why not?

Petal Palette is my favourite bundle in the Spring/Summer catalogue, and the large stamp of three roses with leaves, is my favourite stamp in the set.

I stamped the image on to a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock (CS) using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Then I used the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin' Blends to colour the image, all the time thinking what can I do with this image that's different!

I started my card with a base of Whisper White CS, then a layer of Daffodil Delight CS, and a top layer of one of the designs in the Sale-a-bration Second Release Gift, Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

Using the Light Old Olive Stampin' Blend I coloured all the leaves on the DSP. 

When they were all coloured, I fussy cut the three yellow roses and played around with positioning them.

I was trying to decide if three roses would be enough, or whether I should do another three. 

In the meantime, I stamped my chosen sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on to a piece of Thick Whisper White CS.  

I coloured the partial flower with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. 

I die cut the sentiment using the second Stitched Shape Framelits Circle Die, and used the third die to cut a Daffodil Delight CS circle to layer the sentiment on. 

After I adhered some Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment, I position it in the top right-and corner.

I found a tiny yellow-painted pearl in my box, and adhered it to the partial flower, as well as three unpainted Basic Pearls in a line under the sentiment. 

After adhering Dimensionals to the backs of the roses, I finally placed them in the positions I decided looked best.

I painted three basic Rhinestones using the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends, and adhered one in the centre of each rose.

To decorate the inside of the card I added a layer of Daffodil Delight CS, and then a top layer of Whisper White CS.

After stamping one of the small flower images, from the stamp set, in the bottom right-hand corner, I painted the image in the same style I used for the roses on the front of the card. 

At first, when I finished making today's card, I wasn't sure if I liked it, but I'm pleased to say it's growing on me!

I hope you like it, too! ☺

That's about it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
