Roses Thank You...Just Us Girls Challenge #470~Trend Week: Emboss Resist

Hello,

A bit of a blog-a-palooza happening today...

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #470~Trend Week, where our wonderfully talented Vicki invites to use the Emboss Resist Technique on our cards/projects.


We're delighted to have dual Guest Designers - Janet Ribet and Cindy Major - joining us once again.  Please visit them, as well as my teammates - Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa and Maria - who would love to know you dropped by.

I went 'very' simple with my emboss/resist card, as a) embossing, while beautiful, causes me 'warping' grief and b) watercolouring is...well, you already know...my nemesis! So...a 'smaller' canvas to try to mitigate my issues *grin*. My Favorite Things Roses All Over for the background and a simple sentiment from Uniko's Simply Said series. My zigs played 'sort' of nicely with the water....


Inspiration for my clean and layered card came from the pretty pink flowers at The Card Concept Challenge #106~Pink Party



Over to you...

Looking forward to seeing your lovely emboss resist techniques in the gallery!

Gorgeous! The rose background is so pretty with the variation of the color from your Zigs. In my opinion, your Zigs played perfectly with the water!

Jeanne said...

Oh goodness, Carol! This is so beautiful. The zigs played VERY well today. I think you have more talent than you give yourself credit for! Seriously! What a beautiful card! The black mat also really helps to make the pinks pop!

A lovelier bouquet I've rarely seen, Carol. Your watercoloring is just right.

Wow what gorgeous blending you have here Carol. Beautiful bold and bright. Looks super with the black frame making those roses really pop.

Over the moon in love with this card! I think it is fabulous and I would never have known you struggle with watercoloring! Don't stop!!!

Yes on the warping. Yes on the nemesis! Somehow you've made them both work. This is stunning. Wonderful colors and such dimension!
