Shopping My Get Well Stash

Monday can't be all bad if you can sit outside on the deck and make a card. I needed a get well card, and I really wanted to play along with Shopping Our Stash's current challenge, CAS for Simplicity Day, and managed to combine the need and the desire... 

Not as CAS as I can be, but still, way simpler than it looks! (My favourite kind of card.) That rose? Possibly the second ever Stampin' Up set I bought, and still one of my favourites. After embossing in white on watercolour paper, I misted it with water and sprinkled on some watercolour powder. Here it is, drying in the sun: 

I added a few outline roses to some (truly ancient) patterned paper to tie it to the focal point rose. I could have saved a layer and just used the dark purple as the card base... but it's a get well card and I didn't want it getting TOO dark. :D 
This is actually the second of these roses I've done this way. I'm sure eventually I'll post the other one... 

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up rich razzleberry cardstock, Canson watercolour paper, Dear Lizzy patterned paper, Stampin' Up Fifth Avenue Floral & Clearly Besotted Say What? stamps, Versamark & Stampin' Up rich razzleberry inks, Ranger clear & Wow white embossing powders, Magenta Nuance berry watercolour powder, MFT Blueprints 24 stitched rectangle die, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

Stunning rose, love the intensity of it's color against the simpler background.
This card will cheer up anyone who's not feeling well.
Thank you for sharing with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you join us again next time.
