Rocco with Roses

Hello my sweet friends. I'm sorry I have been so quiet again. I'm too busy to make cards. I love card making much more than writing a blog post about them :) I probably not only one, right?

Here is a card I made with lovely Rocco. He is so darling. I like cards with different folds. This time I made simple step card. All golden matting layers are made with SNS Gold Detail embossing powder. I covered edges of the white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed with golden EP. Big flourish die cut is cut in two to decorate my card.

Rocco is colored with Promarkers. If you are interested how I made the golden splatters around the image, take a look my SNS post here. It's really fun to make them and I love the effect they give. Donna named this as Faux Montage Style Embossing Powder Splatters. Thank you, Donna!

For the background I used piece of pattern paper. I stamped the big flourish with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Golden Detail EP. Because the rose on pattern papers is covered with spot UV some EP stick to it even though I used Anti-Static Bag.  For a second I was upset and reached for new paper but then I started to like it. The crackle effect on the rose and tiny EP sprinkles was nice together. I added some extra embossing powder splatters to the corners as well.
