My English Rose

Happy romantic Thursday.  ;-)  We have the beautiful My English Rose to share in our February line up at Power Poppy today. This set is a must have for Anniversary cards and Valentines day or just because I love you cards. Check out Marcy's thoughts behind this set over on the Power Poppy blog.  

This card turned out just like I pictured it and at the same time it did not. If that makes any sense at all. ha!  This is the single rose in My English rose that I stamped on white cardstock and colored with various Copic markers. A simple scored border around the rose after it was colored and layered on a black panel. I wanted the classic black,white and red for this card. Some designer paper with hearts for the background panel. I stamped love down the side and added swiss dots textures to the right side of that panel. A few pearls to finish it off. Maybe the sparkle is missing? It just doesn't seem quite like I have it pictured in my head but at the same time it does?? Very strange. Anyways...  A gorgeous new set you will love when you see the entire package.  hee hee

The colour combination is perfect Stacy. Red roses are always perfect. I like that you have kept the lines clean as I think with minimum distraction your eye is focused on that wonderful rose that you have coloured up so beautifully. Cheers.

Oh, Stacy, you are too funny! We shall never know what we really in your head now, will we? Hehe! But I love this layout and the black and white with the richly red and romantic rose! Wow! My eye is immediately drawn to this stunning rose that you've colored to perfection, and I love how you've used the words vertically, used dotted swiss embossing, and scored and matted the focal image. Finish it off with a few pearls, and it's gorgeous - for any romantic occasion - ooh-la-la! Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I love it! That's it - settled! Hehe! Warm hugs to you!

How awesome the way you stamped the "love" down the side! I really like that. And your intensely red, gorgeous rose just oozes love. So beautiful!
