White Embossing with Watercolors

Hello! I wanted to show you my design for today as well as tell you about the fab new stamp release blog hop starting today at 
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

First up, today's design:

Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's clear "Thinking of You Rose" stamp and Steel die set make for some fun today...along with embossing and water coloring with Tim Holtz Distress inks.

I began by heat embossing the rose from the stamp set with Ranger Super Fine White Embossing powder onto Ranger Water
color paper.  

Different colors of Tim Holtz Distress inks were used to shade the rose: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose, Iced Spruce, and Weathered Wood. Simply smear some of the ink onto a Ranger Craft Mat, spritz with a bit of water using a Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer, and paint away. After painting the rose, I die cut it using the Rose steel die. 

The rest of the card is composed of Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden" decorator paper and a layer of #40 Vellum

The top oval was die cut from the Fairy Garden paper with a Spellbinder's Oval Hemstitch die, the sentiment stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. The rose is glued onto the oval with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. The oval was then popped up with Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips onto the card base.

A border and shabby bow (created with the Original Bow Easy) of seam binding ribbon in Baby Pink and Cameo Beige, along with a Shabby Chic Collection Stickpin by Darsie, finish this design. 

All linked product is available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

As I said at the beginning of this post: the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is having a blog hop today! Unfortunately, I live overseas and have not received my package with the new stamps as of yet, so will have inspiration for you in the near future.

Please make sure that you head over to Stamp Simply for the blog hop list and take a look. The sets featured for the hop--Graduation Sentiments and Sentiments for Graduation and Beyond:

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great remainder to your week!
