Tips and Techniques

Gorgeous roses from the Love and Roses flower collection.
I added iridescent glitter to the roses. Flowers used on this card include Love and Roses: Marva; Nora; Karin; and Micro Roses.
These chipboard butterfly wings are just perfect around this sweet rose!
The chipboard has been heat embossed with shabby white embossing powder. I added a few red rhinestones for some sparkle.
This little ladybug from my stash is brushed with Rich Gold Metallic Wax to pick up the gold from the background and embossing powder.

I used this Love chipboard piece as a sentiment and added a sparkling heart to the romantic couple.
I added texture with Silver Mica Flakes along with Ruby Red and Gala Pink Metal Microbeads using Soft Gel Medium. The gel medium was still wet when I glittered the flowers, so there is a lovely shimmer in this texture area as well.
