Welcome to my blog here we are again another month gone by so we are on the theme Bingo this is my take on this I had a lot of frustrating times on this one due to taking photos I found it impossible to get it just spot on with its size and light reflection on the black card and embossing so hope you like what I have done
List of equipment
Clarity Black coated card
The other card / lilac card
Texture stamps /sentiment stamps/ Rose and small fern stamps
Stencil /perfect pearls/gold embossing powder
powder duster /ribbon/pinflair glue gel
distress ink pad Black /Mustard/Barn door/Bundle sage
Spiced Marmalade/ salty sea /aged mahogany/ antique linen
Adirondac Denim /Raspberry/  Egg plant
Heat gun / masking notelets
micron black pen number 1
Gems/ clarity ink brushes

 so with the other card I dusted it with my powder pad you can use talc stamped in the clear pad applied gold embossing powder making sure got rid of all the specks first then using my heat gun brought the embossing up once it had cooled put between something heavy as it curled   out as
 Now I put the roses in at these spots the masked them so that they were the ones that stood out as I want to decoupage these also stamp 8 extra to decoupage the main roses
 once I have  put all the roses in masked them I used my fern stamp with bundle sage green ink pad then with brush went around the roses with antique linen till desired look
 with promakers I have coloured the roses in turn so they are all matched together then colour your roses that you put to the side I have done this many a time with this rose stamp cut out the middle section curve with your fingers then apply a pea size of pinflair glue gel to the under side and place on top of the roses
 Then Back with lilac card
hope this shows you a bit more of the decoupage was unhappy that it does not show quite how much this once has come up
 right with the black card run over with powder bag or talc do not want any finger marks or the perfect pearls will stick to this
 I stamped the Elephant in the middle first and applied the gold then lightly brushed it away then the same with the sentiments again in gold then the flourishes I did in white brushed off lightly
 Put to once side for about ten mins then with very soft tissue I polished this and backed it with the lilac card
 The Elephant stencil I started at the bottom with a sponge in the salty sea blue then blended with the mustard then into spiced marmalade then red barn door then into the raspberry for the trunk I went around each section with the marker pen  then with the texture stamp I worked from the bottom up in the darker colours was intending to zedtangle but this came to me thought was a different effect
 Applied my sentiment in egg plant and used Aubergine promarker to do my doodle around the out side then I used gems with pin flir as I wanted that Indian look to this card
 Then applied the lilac backing card I used a length of ribbon used double sided taped to apply these three  applied a bow at the top   hope you have enjoyed this thank you for taking the time to look at my blog
