Today we are looking in depth at Vintage Roses:
In this card, a lot of masking was done to achieve a one-layer pattern. You can use the base layers of each flower to create the masks. The Roses and the leaves were stamped with three/four different inks. A few pearls were scattered to complete the look.
In this card, the word ‘thank you’ was stamped in second and third generations to create a subtle background. The Roses and the leaves were stamped separately, trimmed, and adhered on to the card base. A label maker was used for the sentiment.
Once again, a subtle backdrop was created by stamping a background stamp with Versamark ink on to a pool colored card base. A lot of roses and leaves were stamped and trimmed to create a pattern covering the entire card base. The sentiment, from Persian Motifs set, was embossed in gold on a strip of white card stock whose corners were rounded using a corner punch.
Here the design was kept simple by stamping a pattern on the card base using stamps from the Lacy Scrolls set, then adhering a single Rose with foam tape. The sentiment is from our Many Thanks set, and it was stamped on a strip of white card stock.
Here, the Roses were stamped a little differently. Instead of using monochromatic colors, contrasting colors were used. For the large pink Rose, after stamping the third layer in light brown, the base layer was stamped in very light pink, then colored with a darker Copic marker.
This card was shared last week, but I wanted to show it again, as it shows that the roses can be stamped with just one ink. First, second, and third generations were used for the three-layer roses. If your ink doesn’t make much of an impression at the fourth-generation, you can stamp each layer twice, and end with a third-generation for the fourth layer.
The guide below shows the areas that match between the layers. You may save and print it for reference. It is also available on the Vintage Roses product page.
Here is a video showing how to stamp the Roses in order to achieve the best result possible.
We would love to see what you create with this set! Don’t forget to share your projects with us at our flick group.
