ID: DT Apr/15 - Quill Roses - Brushos - In A Perfect World card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 27, 2015

Love the Hybrid Heirloom Roses (Die-Namics) it's the BEST rose die I've come across... It's a 3 piece die set. The center cluster is one of those coil type that just shapes so beautifully without having to adjust or force it to shape. It's beautiful just on it's own too. But when paired with the other two layers - I'm loving it. Can you tell BIG GRIN

I'm using the absolutely newest stamps from Quietfire Design  I just got them in the mail this afternoon... BIG GRIN they are just gorgeous!!

("Worry"); ("In A Perfect World" 4 pce set)


I went to a demo on the weekend and one of the products they mentioned was TerraSkin. It's a gorgeous substrate that feels like silk and made from stone. I had bought a pad a while back when I first came across the product, but then like most things... it went up on to one of my shelves... So I resurrected it. Love the way it works with Brushos. I had misted the "paper" and then sprinkled with "Yellow", "Vermillion"; & "Turquoise", misted a bit more and tilted my paper this way and that, then set it aside to dry naturally. The paper is under the lattice work, used for the butterfly border and the butterfly on the inside.

I eCut the lattice work from white cardstock. Hit the lattice area with Versamark and embossed with Hot Stuff "Brushed Copper Leaves", randomly inked again and embossed with "Turquoise Shimmer", then randomly embossed a 3rd time with the Brushed Copper again.

Sponged various Distress browns around the rest of the piece "Antique Linen", "Old Paper", "Brushed Corduroy", "Walnut Stain". Adhered to a side folded lime green textured card.

Stamped the quote using Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

Die cut the butterfly border (Memory Box "Butterfly Vine Border") from the brusho paper, applied Stickles "Ice Crystals" using my finger on the BFlies, then adhered the strip following the contour of the lattice work.

Raided my stash of flowers and the toaster oven perlé bead flowers. Adhered to card.

Inked some white cardstock with Distress greens "Shabby Shutters" & "Peeled Paint" and punched out the foliage (McGill "Pine").

On the inside: Taped down a Memory Box stencil and pounced using the Versamark pad. Removed the stencil and using a sponge applicator applied Pan Pastels Pearlescent powders in yellow, blue, pink & green.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Die cut the butterfly (Joy craft) from the Brusho paper and adhered on the body only.

Stamped the floral sprig (Rubbernecker "Floral) with the Versamark and sponged with the pastels.

As a final touch added faux stitching around the edges using a green colored pencil.
