Monochrome Rose


I’m Lisa, and this is my first post on my new blog, Live2Color. I’m excited to be sharing what I’m working on with you and hope you enjoy visiting my site.

That’s all the introduction I have, so let me talk about my latest project.

I saw a great Halloween card by Dawn Olchefske that used black embossing powder in the background and decided to try it out on my own. Her video shows the basic steps I followed for the embossing, so you can click on the link above to check that out. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the frame. After embossing the card, I couldn’t just leave the frame empty, so I drew the rose and colored it in a monochrome palette using Copic markers  (BV23, BV25, BV29) and then spent a little while cutting it out. The paper for the card is Neenah card stock, and the rose was colored on X-press It blending card. I used double-sided adhesive foam tape to give the rose a little depth.


I like how one leaf is falling out of the frame. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
