Build a Flower (Rose) Stamp and Die Set

 Hi friends! I'm still migrating my blog and today I'm sharing a wonderful stamped Altenew Rose card. 
Hi there! Today is all about the rose and I am in love with this set. It was relatively easy to work out due to the helpful 'how to' on the pack of the stamp packaging. However, it took me awhile to work out my palette as I have a mishmash of brands and colours but after what felt like hours I went with a yellow base and worked from there. 
Inks for the Rose
Distress Ink- Squeezed Lemonade
Memento - Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Tangelo, Morocco, Rhubarb Stark
Inks for the Leaves
Nuvo - Lime Burst
Altenew - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Memento - Olive Grove
Inks for the Background
Distress Oxide - Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn
Ink for the Sentiment
Nuvo - Black Shadow Hybrid 
I started off stamping out the rose and it did take about 3 times (ok, more like 5) before I knew where the lines were. If you're not familiar with layering 
stamps you really have to stick with it - once you get a feel of the stamps it's quick and easy.
Repeat the process with the leaves, colours are listed above. Now die cut your flowers and leaves and set aside.
Cut a panel of watercolour card 5.25 inches x 4 inches and knock some Distress Oxides on your craft mat, spray lightly with water and smoosh your card into the ink.
Cut a piece of white cardstock 1 inch by 5.25 inches and using your black ink, stamp your sentiment centrally on your small panel
Cut a sliver of handmade paper by Tonic Studios (or any paper) x 5.25 inches long. Adhere the sentiment to the bottom of your smooshed watercolour panel and then add the additional sliver of paper to balance your card.
Assemble your leaves and roses to the front panel and then adhere to an A2 card base.

Isn't this just a gorgeous stamp! I don't use yellow very often but I wanted to celebrate friendship this week and think it turned out really well.
This card was made specifically as a big thank you to all my friends, old and new - who are awesome! I love ya ladies!
