Crackling Rose and Floribunda Net (by Anne)

I have two cards to share with you today using the lovely new floral collage stamps – Crackling Rose and Floribunda Net.


The images were stamped onto white watercolour card with Versafine (Black Onyx). The images were then masked with Pebeo Drawing Gum. I love this masking fluid. It is so easy to apply, and remove. Also brushes are cleaned easily with water.

The background washes were created by scribbling ink onto my glass mat and picking up with a wet brush and painting onto dampened card.

The masking fluid was removed and the flowers were then coloured with watercolour markers, using a damp brush to blend.

The Crackling Rose was mounted into a vintage die cut frame highlighted with gilding wax. This was then mounted onto a crackle embossed background with 3D foam pads for added dimension. Sparkly organza ribbon was used to ‘ground’ the frame. Stickles glitter glue (Diamond) added some extra sparkle to the rose petals and frame.

I used a 7X7 card blank and decorative script paper from my recent Stash Box purchase to make up the Floribunda Net card. I embossed the card blank with a net embossing folder and used some pearlescent gold paper for layering. I finished with organza ribbon, glitter glue and PVA pearls. The sentiment was from the Card Sentiments stamp set.

I hope that you like the new stamps this month as much as we all have.

Happy crafting, Anne x.


  1. What gorgeous cards today. I especially love the first rose. :)

  2. Two real beauties Anne! I adore the gilded frame you have given the first one, and the mix of papers and die cuts with the second image work beautifully. x

  3. Hi Anne, what gorgeous cards, your colouring is wonderful and your designs are so pretty, Kate x
