Stamp Review Crew | Rose Wonder

Why hello there!! Welcome to the first Stamp Review Crew Blog hop for March. What, March already?? Christmas still feels like yesterday. 

If you are joining us for the first time we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators that show one Stampin' Up! stamp set at a time, every first and third Monday's of the month. Be sure to make your way around the hop by clicking the next button at the bottom of each post. If you get lost along the way click on the banner at the top of each post and that will lead you to the list of hoppers so you can continue seeing all the fabulous creations. 

This hope we are using the very beautiful stamp set Rose Wonder. Just stunning! There is also matching thinlits to go with this set, Rose Garden. Love a bit of matchy, matchy! I've only used the stamp set for you today. 

I did a bit of CASE-ing of myself today and colouring on Crumb Cake cardstock. To see my creation that I Case-d check it out here.

My most favourite thing to do with this set is to stamp that beautiful big rose and just colour way and after a busy weekend away it was so nice to spend some time this morning just colouring away. I could feel myself destressing (spelling?) as the minutes went by. 

The best way to colour onto Crumb Cake cardstock is to stamp your image and fill in each section with a very thin layer of Whisper White Craft ink with an aqua painter. This like putting down a base coat like when your painting and it also allows you to use a little bit more water than without it. If you went to colour with out the Whisper White layer the cardstock would most definitely pill and ball up. To see how I started check out the Instagram photo I put up this morning at the start of the process. It will give you a better idea of what to do.

After the Whisper White layer I used the Watercolour Pencils to add the colour. I first coloured straight on to each section with the Watercolour Pencils and then pulled the colour out with an Aqua painter. Once that first layer was done I went over and did a touch up layer by picking the colour straight off the pencil with the Aqua painter and fixed up the sections or added more colour where needed.

Once all finished with the colouring I've finished it off with one of the many sentiments from the set. How beautiful is that script font??!! Just pretty! I've also added some trim and embellishments to finish prettying up the card.
