Take Flight 20 – Day 18 Clean and simple Bed of Roses card

February 21, 2013
Take Flight Twenty Penny Black

Karen Dunbrook‘s clean, simple and very striking card was made by stamping Bed of Roses in Memento black then cutting it into three strips.  She stamped the background again and cut out and coloured just one of the roses with Copic markers.  A sentiment from Edge to Edge was stamped on a hand-cut banner, and the rose and banner were adhered with foam tape. Simple beauty!

    Cutting the background into panels was a great idea. Lifting and coloring one of the background roses made a perfect focal point. Excellent choice in size of sentiment also. Anything smaller would have been lost in the background……….even raised on foam!

    I have loved each day getting your take flight session. Have been making cards for almost 2 years and am still learning as there is so much to be learned. First started out with dollar stamps and was excited and now when money permits i get a better stamp and still am having fun and making new friends online who do card making–Thanks–Donna
