The Vampire Rose

Happy day to all.  My card today features the wonderful image 'Rose - a vampire' from Saturated Canary.  This is a company I have just discovered and the images are exquisite. I think you will be seeing a lot more of this wonderful artwork on my blog.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.


Without further ado on to the card.


The wonderful image has been coloured in shades of pink, purple and grey using Promarker and Fleximarker pens and decorated with heart shaped jewels.  Various sizes of cutting dies have been used to create her mounting and also the card itself and backing sheets which are made from 12 x 12 sheets.  All of the papers come from my stash.  I have decorated the front of the card with buttons and more hearts, ribbons, bows, roses for Rose and a filigree corner.  There is a lilac spray which I coloured with my Promarkers.    The inside of the card uses matching papers,ribbon and embellishments.  I have created the sentiment and used vintage distressed inks to colour and this is mounted on a matching coloured foiled heart.



A closer look at this fabulous image.  I enjoyed using these colour tones which were outside of my usual comfort zone, particularly so much use of the grey, but I think it worked well.  Please let me know what you think.

Sending warmest wishes to all.
