I was looking through some of my retired stamps sets and realized that whether they're current or not, some are definitely here to stay. The gorgeous Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, for example, just begs to be coloured using our new Blendabilities. Since the large rose in the set was perfect for a challenge that I wanted to enter, I was happy to oblige. No further begging required. This is the sketch for the challenge I had in mind:
For my card base I used the Naturals White and then layered a piece of the Blackberry Bliss design from the Park Lane Designer Series paper. Then I cut a much smaller rectangle of Naturals White and then layered a piece of Blackberry Bliss on top of that, leaving a very narrow frame. After that I cut a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White and stamped that using two of the splatter stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Blushing Bride ink. I stamped my sentiment in the bottom right corner using Blackberry Bliss ink and the retired Happy Watercolor stamp set. I added that to the Naturals White and Blackberry Bliss layers and then centred the smaller rectangle over the Designer Paper.
I glued the first two layers of the rose into place and then used Dimensional to place the third and fourth layers. Then, to finish of the card, I stamped two feathers from the Four Feathers stamp set onto Summer Starfruit cardstock (retired) using Blackberry Bliss ink. I cut the feathers using the matching framelit and then glued them into place just under the bottom layer of the rose.
