I'm so excited that today is my first *official* post on Couture Cardstock's blog! My assignment was to work with the monochromatic family A Rose by Any Other Name, which was a perfect fit for me since pink is one of my favorite colors!
tuber and coppelia inspired me to stamp this image from Hero Arts' Artistic Grapes. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on detail blending paper cut and embossed with a nestabilities label 10 die, and colored the grapes with a combination of Copic markers and a white Prisma color pencil for highlights. A vertical strip of Applejack was edged with a MS edge punch and some strips of gorgeous two-toned satin ribbon. All of the papers were distressed and sponged with Tim Holtz tea-dye ink. I finished with a bow easy two-loop bow, and a few sparkling jewels.
