Muse Challenge #245 - Partial Die Cut Rose

Hi there

I'm thrilled to be your designer over at Muse again for this week's new challenge.

I made this card whilst at the Happy Little Stampers craft retreat last month when one of the techniques we were having fun with was partial die-cutting.

I hope there are a few different elements to inspire you this week.  I've included partial die-cutting, heat embossing, watercolouring and contrasting cardstock.  Or perhaps the floral theme, colours or layout will be your inspiration.

I started by stamping the rose in VersaMark ink onto some watercolour card and heat embossed in white.  I then watercoloured using my Derwent Inktense pencils.  I then partially die cut the rose with it's co-ordinating die and then made a vertical cut between the image with my trimmer.

I adhered some black cardstock to the card base and stamped the sentiment on the rose panel before adhering it popped up on 3D foam.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Merci Beaucoup (and co-ordinating die)
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
  • Watercoloured with Derwent Inktense pencils
  • Cardstock: Daler Rowney - Aquafine, black from stash
