I am having fun using my Mariposa papers
Why am I FINALLY using these pretty papers you may ask/ Well, because I ordered a second set from Scrapadabadoo. LOL
I chose this burgundy sheet from the 12x 12 Mariposa paper pad
I trimmed it down and layered it on top of some black cardstock and gold foil trim.
I made 3 different types of flowers. I have some small simple flowers that I inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. Then there are some Loose Roses that have been stained with Aged Mahogany Distress Satin the I brushed over them with Clear Wink of Stella.
I could not resist brushing over the edges with Gold Wink of Luna. The centers where filled with gold micro beads, I did something special to the Open Rose. I started out staining it with Aged Mahogany but with all the gold foil on the patterned paper I felt the rose needed a little gold, I dabbed Flittler Glu onto the petals and then rubbed on some Minc Gold foil.
The outcome is so pretty and once the foil was on there it did not come off as I shaped the petals.
I added some Prima bling from my stash then sat back and admired all the gold foil on the card. :)
