I liked the stamped background of the first card and kept that except that I did a white embossed stamped image on white cs for shine and texture. I love the sparkly Fifth Avenue Floral rose on the second card and that was just the inspiration I needed to pull it out and stamp with it.
I stamped the rose and the leaves (which are from Wild Rose, an old SU stamp set), on watercolor paper, heat embossed them, and then took distress ink direct to the paper. Once inked, I sprayed with water heavily laced with Perfect Pearls for some shimmer. Jennifer McGuire just recently released a video using this technique: https://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2...-giveaway.html
While it dried, I stamped the white panel with a Script background stamp - this is the first time it has seen ink. And I heat embossed it for some white shine and texture.
After fussy cutting the flower and leaves, I popped them up with dimensionals, heat embossed the sentiment and punched it out with the Word Window punch.
MMTPT512: I find flowers to be comforting and hope this card is comforting.
Thank you for looking.

OH I remember that rose haven't seen (or used) it in a long time. I forgot how pretty it is. and especially with sparkle...;0). I LOVE how you did the stamped bg with white embossing so elegant. I tired a couple heat embossing but have to try again as either I burn them or have sparkles all over that stick on where they shouldn't. I have just learned um...I think you can use dryer sheets or was it baby wipes ..oh dear will have to re check so I can try it again, its a beautiful bg. Sorry rambling. Ty though for honoring me this week and bringing me back down memory lane. So mad e my day....HUGS

This is just so gorgeous Catherine. I adore the script heat embossing you did in the background because the shine from that ties in so nicely to the shine you have achieved in this gorgeous rose. Wow! You have made a gorgeous/comforting sympathy card that will truly be appreciated Catherine. ~Karen.
