Simon Says - Layered Rosebud

Hi my friends, I'm sharing a Valentine's Day card I made using Simon Says Layered Rosebud die and Love You Greetings stamp set from the Hugs release. You can check out all the fabulous products in this release HERE.

I die-cut the Layered Rosebud die from Distress Watercolor, coloured the die-cut pieces with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool, darkening the edges and some of the pieces to create the illusion of dimension, spritzed with water, dried and assembled.
I coloured Distress Watercolor card with Simon Says Aegean Pawsitively Satured Ink using Simon Says Blending Brush and die-cut Simon Says Etched Berry Branch. I cut off the leaves, discarded the berries and added shading to the bottom of the leaves using Simon Says Round Detail Blending Brush
I applied Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink lightly through Simon Says Extra Large Dots Stencil using a mini round blending tool to add a subtle hint of colour to a panel of Distress Watercolor card which will be the background for the card.
I stamped the sentiments from Simon Says Love You Greetings stamp set inked with Intense Black Ink.
I shaded the edges of the panel with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, fixed the leaves in place with Distress Collage Medium, the rosebud popped up on Simon Says 3D Foam Squares and added Trinity Stamps Sweet and Tart Heart Sprinkles.
To finish I matted the panel on to a white card blank. 

I'll be back soon to share more projects using products from the Hugs release. Have fun with whatever you are making.
