A Textured Rose By Any Other Name

As you can probably guess I did make quite a lot of samples for the Create and Craft show the other week, so I thought I would share another one today as I'm working on a couple of commissions that I can't show just yet.

This one is using one of the flowers and sentiments from the Creative Expressions Floral Splendour stamps.

But I've also done a bit of stitching on this card too with the gorgeously tactile faux-suede leaves ribbon.

I've used a slightly different method to colour the rose for this card. I've used the Cosmic Shimmer Watercolours again but rather than using them as block colour as I did with the Poppy Card, where you get a bright pop of colour and shine, I've used them more like how I would use ordinary watercolours and you get a much more subtle effect with some texture and a 'quieter' mica shine.

Ok, so I better get back to finishing off these commissions.

Catch you later Artinators.

  2. I am certain that the amount of preparation you put into the shows ensured your relaxed self on air. Having so many beautiful samples around the set must instil confidence so well done Kim, very well done. Each use of the products is inspirational to us all.

  11. Angenähte Blätter, was für eine grandiose Idee.

  12. I only managed to catch one of the shows Kim and that was a lucky accident as I just switched channels to see what was on and got a lovely surprise. I quickly pressed record so I have rewatched several times already (and it means I can f/forward the sales pitch ;D). I thoroughly enjoyed the show and your style made a lovely addition to the very few I like to watch on there. I shall be watching out for more.
