Beauty in a Single Rose (by Shirley)

Hello everyone ! 

Today I have a card created with the single rose from the gorgeous Rose & Thistle set.   I enjoy the challenge of one-layer, clean & simple cards and decided to create one with this beautiful rose.  If you follow my blog then you've already seen this design.  I apologize but it 'got away' on me during a 'fumble finger' moment.   

I drew lines with a fine pencil on the right hand area of folded heavy card stock.    I embossed the single Rose with black.    I created masks with scrap paper to cover the area that I wanted to keep white & blended Shabby Shutters Distress Ink in the open area.   Next I used Peeled Paint Distress ink with the Mini-Harlequin TCW Stencil.   

After removing the masks I stamped Love from the Artistic Expressions set (I use this set a lot!) with black versafine ink.   I coloured the rose with co-ordinating Distress Markers and blended a little with water.    Very easy & quick to create !

Thanks for your visit and have a great day !
