Curtian Call - Bouquet

I've been playing with my MISTI stamp tool along with Altenew's Vintage roses. I always had trouble lining the layers up, but this tool...wow! Pricey but wow! I was trying to figure out color combinations and had made several roses...so they were perfect to put together in a bouquet.  Perfect for the Curtain Call's Inspiration Challenge - Bouquet.

 

I took my inspiration from the bunch of multi-colored flowers, the glass vase and the blue couch in the background.

 Of course the roses have a bit of WOS on them, but the glittery loveliness is so hard to capture in a photograph.  The bowl portion of the card is thanks to Stampendous' Bowl Bouquet, and those glass marbles in the bottom, are covered in glossy accents, to provide a bit of texture. I water-colored the bowl and grounding area, the flowers were stamped with combinations of Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp and WPlus9 dye inks.

The water color panel and the card face were die cut using WPlus 9 dies.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Cat, what a darling card this is! The roses are simply beautiful.
    Fabulous idea to use glossy accents on the marbles.

    Have fun using your MISTI. I don't own one, yet.
    I'm wondering if it's really worth buying?
