Close at Heart

Today's card features the beautiful, new for September Artichoke Rose stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.
I paired it up with an older stencil called Simple Grid to create my card.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and positioned the rose part of the Artichoke Rose stencil in the bottom right hand corner as I wanted it to be the largest on my card front.
  • Using some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink, I blended that into the flower center and then added some Festive Berries DOX ink to the rest of the flower.
  • I moved the flower to the side and then to the top corner using the same colours of inks.
  • I removed the stencil and added the square details to the open white areas using the Simple Grid stencil and some more of the Picked Raspberry DOX ink.
  • I placed the stenciled panel into my Misti to stamp the sentiment and clear heat embossed it.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I glued the dried panel onto a piece of deep red cardstock although it looks more blackish in the photo, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I added 3 black gems around the sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:
