Coloring Down The Lines -- Regal Rose

Happy blog hop Wednesday.  It's that time of the week again.  This time we have been challenged to use another two color combination -- Regal Rose and Rose Red.   You should have arrived from Helen's blogsite.  Wasn't her card pretty, love it.  Be sure to look around her site, she has awesome creations!

These colors are ideal for Valentine's Day, but I am so done with hearts and Valentines.  I do, however, need a get well card and I thought what better than a cheery pink flower.  LOL.   I hope my friend likes pink!  I used both Regal Rose and Rose Red in the flower, which is cut with the Fun Flowers Bigz Die.  I also used one of the paper doilies from the Spring catalog.  I have only a couple more left, but I don't want to hoard them.  Notice the little paperclip?  That is one of the Hung Up Cute Clips from the Spring catalog.  I wanted a gold one to go with the burnished gold in the brad.  Since they come only in silver, I got out my thinking cap, and decided to ink up the silver with my gold Stampin Dazzle Marker, which is carried over from the Holiday catalog.  It worked pretty well.  I heat set after coloring, and so far the color has not rubbed off. 

I embossed each of the flower petals with the Polka Dots  and Lacy Brocade folders.  Then I scrunched, folded, and bent the petals to give them a little shape.  Not sure that shows through on the picture, but they are crinkled.  I'm not sure I like the Linen Thread on the clip, but it is there to stay, so I think it will have to be ok.

So now it is time to hop over to Teri's blogsite to see what she has for us.  It's another Wow! creation, I am sure.   Be sure to come back soon.

Crafty Hugs,
