Sending Love and Roses

My BFF’s step mom is really sick so I made this card for her. I like the sentiment better than just Thinking of You in this instance.

sending love and roses

The heart is chipboard I covered in a few layers of embossing powder. You can tell my EP is old because there are lots of ‘inclusions’ in it after so long! I love how my new lights show the shininess so well! YEAH!

The roses are heat embossed on vellum and colours with Copics from the back. next time I may use regular markers. It’s the one time I’d say colouring with water based in is actually better. The Copics got gummy when I tried to blend then after the first layer of ink had dried. It’s hard to see but there are a few pearl dots using Liquid Pearls.


I’m entering this in Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge H is for… I used Hearts and heat embossing. And Mojo Monday’s sketch challenge 383.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
