Wendy Vecchi Make the Most of It Roses in a Pot Card

Hello All!!! If you have visited here for a while now, you know how much I love and use Archival Ink. I rarely make anything without's essential for me. So when Ranger releases a new color, I get excited. Wendy Vecchi just came out with three new colors, Periwinkle, English Ivy, and Goldenrod, (and three new colors a few months ago) and I of course had to have them, and made this quick card using them, and I challenged myself not to use black ink so the English Ivy did the trick.  Wendy also came out with three new colors of Liquid Pearls, coordinating with the inks. YUM! 
Apply Periwinkle Archival Ink directly from the pad onto a craft mat, and mist liberally with 91% rubbing alcohol until ink is nice and beaded up. Take a piece of White Perfect Cardstock Panel and run it through the wet ink covering the panel completely. The ink should have a marbled look. Dry with a heat tool, and clean up the wet ink.

Place the panel into a stamp platform and add the roses stamp from the Rosy Art set, in the upper left corner and close the lid to secure the stamp. Stamp the image using English Ivy Archival, and then stamp the lower leaf portion again onto sticky note. Use scissors to cut the bottom leaf area out.

Place the sticky note leaves over the coordinating leaves on the panel. Add the pot from the Bold Floral Art Stamp Set to the panel below the roses so that the leaves will hang over the pot. Stamp the pot in Periwinkle Archival. Add Night Sky Archival to the border areas of the pot and stamp again, so that the pot has a darker border for a dimensional look.
Stamp the solid mini leaves around the plant about five times using English Ivy Archival, and then stamp the sentiment on an extra piece of Perfect Cardstock to use for later. 
Take a rose cluster from the Rosy Art Coordinates Mat Minis, and ink over it with Goldenrod Archival and an ink blending tool. Lay the roses stamp image side up and ink over the roses using Goldenrod and then place the mat mini over the roses so they match up and press down to stamp the image. 
Place the sticky note leaves back onto the leaf area and then use the matching pot stencil from Bold Floral Art to ink in Night Sky Archival along the top and bottom of the pot, each time matching up the stencil to the pot, and using the magnets from the Stay-tion to secure it and being careful not to get ink in another area. 
Place the leaves portion of the stencil from the Rosy Art set over the coordinating leaves and ink over them using Prickly Pear Archival, each time moving the stencil to match the leaves, and using the magnets from the Stay-tion to secure it and being careful not to get ink in another area. 
Using the Yikes Stripes Stencil, lay it over the panel and covering it completely, then lightly stencil in the stripes over the open areas using Periwinkle Archival. Ink around the border of the panel as well using Periwinkle. 
Mount the panel onto dark green cardstock that matches the English Ivy Archival, but make the right side of the green cardstock about one inch longer, using two sided tape. Add the wide yellow striped Washi Tape to the right side of the panel matching it up to the right side of the green cardstock, and wrap the overhang around the back. Mount this onto a kraft cardstock base cut to 5 x 6 inches when folded, using two sided tape. Ink the edges of the card with Potting Soil Archival. 
 Use Perfect Card Adhesive to adhere the roses to the card. Use markers to color in the open area on the pot, as well as add some darker shadow areas to the roses. Use a white pen to add dots to the centers of the flowers on the pot, and some highlight areas on the roses. Add the sentiment to a piece of kraft cardstock, cut it out and ink the edges in Potting Soil Archival. Mount the sentiment onto the card front. Add a tiny amount of Periwinkle Liquid Pearls to the Stay-tion and pick up with a stylus and add dots to the tiny solid leaves and a trio of dots around the leaves. Do the same with Sunflower Liquid Pearls in the centers of the roses. Let dry.

    You challenged yourself and did great. Sometimes you just don’t need to stamp in black!
