I started by stamping the sentiment in Versamark ink onto black cardstock, covering it with white heat-embossing powder, and melting it with my heat tool.
Then, I cut four of these pretty rose designs (design # 81815) out of the same black cardstock using my CAMEO as well as one from a piece of white cardstock. Through careful masking, I colored the white cardstock outline with my Copic airbrush and adhered this layer and the other four black layers together with liquid glue to form a super thick die-cut embellishment.
Once layered together, I applied several layers of clear embossing powder to the die-cut (melting each layer as it was applied) until I had a glossy and smooth embellishment that looked as if it were enamel. With such a bold die-cut and sentiment, I felt the card only needed a bright and colorful mat layer (Strawberry Slush by Stampin Up) to finish it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I would love to hear your comments!
