Rose and Scroll Card

This is another of my samples from the Rose set. The card blank is made with the largest die in the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels 11 set. I cut that out of some brown 12x12 card and then cut another for the front in some cream card.

I stamped the ink bottle first with an Espresso Adirondack ink pad (this is used for all of the stamping), then built up the scroll around it. As I had to extend it slightly to fit everything in I photocopied it to make a mask. Once I had that I stamped the roses so that they looked like they were behind the scroll. Some of the roses were also masked where they overlapped.

The roses and background were coloured in with ProMarkers.  Budding Rose, Dusky Rose, and Antique Pink for the roses and Tan for the background. I added some Antique Paper Distress Ink with an Ink Duster to give a slightly aged look, especially to the scroll.

The rose embellishment is made with cream Shrink Plastic and coloured with the same colours. I went quite lightly with them as the colour does intensify when you shrink it.

Glossy Accents were added to the ink bottle to give it the look of glass.

Stamps Used
Pen, Ink Bottle, and Scroll stamps from the Remountable Artist Set
