Embossed Roses

I'm working behind the scenes on lotsa-lotsa gang :)  All good stuff that I know you'll love, but I can't let you see these things I thought I'd pull out another very lovely design with the Old Tea Rose set.  This time showing it off with some embossing and copic colouring.    I stamped with VersaMark Ink on our Flourishes Classic Kraft card stock, embossing with white powder.  The key to colouring on embossing with copics is to stay away from the edges of the embossing.  You don't want anything to clog your copic nibs.  

So I just added some pretty coral-red to the flowers, and a little bit to the cut out butterfly.  Then I added some designer paper from Carta Bella's So Noted, some wide chevron striped green ribbon, some lovely lace and a few enamel dots from the Memories Collection, all on a base of Tiger Lily Color Made Easy Cardstock.  

I hope to have something to show off to you tomorrow too :)  Thanks for dropping by!
