I used daubers to color in this rose and leaves. I used the Rose Garden Thinlits to cut out the rose on white card stock. I colored in and around with daubers and Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Ink Pads. You can find directions in my previous post from February 17.

I had to try this Pleated Skirt Technique. It works very well with the new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper from the new Occasions Catalog. See instructions below.
I cut a strip of Birthday Bouquet DSP measuring 6 x 12. I then scored at 2, 3, 5 6, 8, 9 and 11. Then I measured an 1" on each end and put a pencil mark.
I used those pencil marks to cut the piece in half at an angle. You can make four cards with one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP.

Today's Monochromatic Monday sample is this gorgeous white on white sample featuring the Stampin' Up! Bloomin Heart Thinlit. I love the simplicity and elegance of this card. I left off the greeting so I can use it for Mother's Day, Bridal Shower or Wedding card.

Earn this stamp set for free during Sale-A-Bration. For depth of color, I stamped the flower with the outline first in Hello Honey and then the larger solid piece in Daffodil Delight.

Today's "Alter It" sample is a pencil cup I made with the cardboard cylinder from an empty roll of tape. As soon as I saw the height of this roll I thought it would be great for a pencil cup. I realized after I took this picture that my little pink hearts on the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper are upside down. But I think this paper is so pretty that anything works.

I love the Stampin' Up! Rose Garden Thinlits. The more I use it, the more I am obsessed with it. On these cards I used daubers to color in and around the rose with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink pads.
You actually get 2 cards from this technique. You have the rose colored in and the beautiful reverse image. I have more details and images below showing how I made these cards.
I used the thinlit to cut out the rose on white card stock and then I colored in and around the rose with daubers. I used my fingers to hold down the thinlit while I was coloring. The more abstract, the prettier the image.
For this demonstration I switched up the colors and used Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive ink pads.
