MC Mar/17 - Yellow Rose - ECD Friends - Those Who Find

I came across this tattoo image of a rose (eltattooartist on Deviant Art) and had an urge to do some coloring... so I printed it out on white cardstock and this is the result.

Side folded the white card to make a 5"w x 7" h card. Colored the image with Prisma colored pencils. The backgrond was too bare so I randomly embossed using my hard rubber mallet and Darrice "Bricks" embossing folder. Hit the high points with Distress "Tea Dye" and then sponged a bit of "Ground Espresso", then a touch of "Mustard Seed".

A while back I die cut a whole whack of Quietfire Design words (also available from Elizabeth Craft Designs), and this was one cut from some scrapbook paper... which I then adhered onto a black layer, slightly offset. Friends and on Quietfire Design HERE

On the inside stamped the rose ("The Earth Laughs In Flowers" 2 pce set) and colored with Derwent Inktense colored pencils, moving the color around with a wet paintbrush.  Stamped the quote (" Always Be My Friend..." 3pce set) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Then randomly stamped around everything with the "crackle stamp. Sponged some brown around everything. (all stamps from Quietfire Design)

That's a beautiful rose image and I love how you embossed around it. Never thought of that. Maybe I need a rubber mallet, sheesh. There are so many ideas to file away...

It sounds dangerous and funny at the same time when you said you used a mallet to do the embossing but it worked your cards look lovely,thanks for joining us at Oh La La.
