Splash Part Deux!

I really love color splash challenges and couldn't resist playing along again with The Play Date Cafe's current challenge ending today:




I was finally able to get the matching dies for the Papertrey ink set called The Sweet Life so I decided to use the roses from that set to do more of a literal interpretation of the inspiration photo:


I first used the dies to randomly die cut roses from a piece of white cs.  I placed the negative space panel on a second piece of white cs and lightly traced the outlines with a pencil so I would know where to stamp the images on the second piece.  I used both Hero Arts wet cement and Versamark onyx black inks to stamp the roses.  The negative space panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper embossing folder then adhered to the stamped panel.  The sentiment frame is from Hero Arts and was die cut with a matching Hero Arts frame cut and adhered to the card front with foam tape. 
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs, Stampin' Up gumball green cs, Queen & Co black pearls, Michael's black cs



Thanks for stopping by!

A winner!! I pinned this incredible card, Robin. I have that set & need to use it again. I was just trying to figure out a card with stamping in the negative spaces with the matching stamps--now maybe I can do it.
