Papertey Ink - Make It Monday - #9 Heat Embossing

Quick post here to add a card for this week's Make It Monday - Heat Embossing.

I'm trying to think ahead and used the opportunity to make a Mother's Day card. I love the Year of Flowers series and have been thinking about trying to color the rose like a Peace Rose - yellow tipped in pink. Well, I worked on it and this is what I came up with.



It's my mother's favorite rose. Grandpa used to grow them. But she and I have no luck whatsoever.

I started by stamping the rose in Smokey Shadow and heat embossing with Filigree clear powder on white cardstock. The background is A Little Argyle, overstamped with Turning a New leaf embossed with Filigree white. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #4. The rose is colored with Copics. I added a white silk leaf.

Not much time tonight. Hope you're having a good weekend. Thanks for dropping by.

Lovely! Look at the shading on that rose! I find yellow such a tricky color to work with, but you did an amazing job!
