Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop April Subscription Items

Hey there! Welcome to the B|M Inspiration Team Blog Hop! This week we feature the subscription products available in April 2019. My project includes the Stencil of the Month and an add-on stamp set for the Inspiration Box, called Happy Rose.

To begin this card, I sprayed my stencil with Pixie Spray from Therm O Web, to make sure that the Aqua Pigment did not seep under the stencil. Then l used a Ranger blending tool to daub Licorice Aqua Pigment over the cardstock. This is a metallic pigment and it leaves a shimmery ghost-like effect on the dark cardstock. I trimmed the stenciled cardstock down to 4 x 5.25”. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from the Happy Rose stamp set on the front using Alabaster Embossing Powder.

The day before, I had stamped out the Happy Rose image onto to some Bristol Smooth cardstock several times and colored them in with different marks. For this particular rose, I used Arteza Real Brush Pens. I fussy cut the image out and set it aside. Then, I took out some B|M Heat-Resistant Vellum and stamped the rose image using B|M Clear Embossing Ink and embossed it with Alabaster Embossing Powder. Then, I fussy cut the vellum rose out and adhered the leaves to the back of the colored rose.

To finish off the card, I popped the rose up on some foam tape and then adhered it all on to the front of an A2 sized card base.
