I created this card for my mom's birthday today (Happy Birthday MOM). I used the Brutus Monroe stamp set "Botanical Banners" which features three roses. First, I stamped the image using Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink. Then I heat embossed the stamped image with Brutus Monroe Raven Embossing Powder. Next, I used Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigments in the following colors to make the roses:
- Hollyhock Metallic
- Iris Metallic
- Lavender Metallic
- Cactus Metallic
- Yellow Green
I like how the aqua pigments created such a stunning and vibrant floral image. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut the stamped image out. After my image was complete, I used the Brutus Monroe embossing ink to create a water mark back ground. This effect was created by inking the Brutus Monroe Floral Lace Background stamp with embossing ink and stamping it onto a piece of light purple paper for the card panel. I used my heat gun to dry the embossing ink. No embossing powder was used on the background stamp. This created the subtle water mark background.
I heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment stamp from the Brutus Monroe Sharon's Script stamp set with Brutus Monroe Raven Embossing Powder. This sentiment was stamped using Brutus Monroe embossing ink onto brown craft paper. I used a Sixxiz sentiment strip to die cut the sentiment. I used Aubergine Brutus Monroe card stock for my card base. I added a few purple gem embellishments and the card was complete!
