"My Dark Valentine"
Gothic Rose Easel Card
by Leigh


 Kicking of Day 1 of the Hop I created this fabulous easel card featuring my Gothic Rose and "My Dark Valentine" sentiment from the Dark Sentiments Set 1.


I printed my Gothic Rose design 3 times to create the dimensional layers plus leaves which I printed out larger.  I coloured the design with Copics and then fussy cut everything out.  The gorgeous easel die is Anna Griffin's Easel Heart die set.  The sentiment panel I coloured with Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress Ink.  I also edged all the red cardstock pieces with Black Soot Distress Ink.  The gorgeous lace hearts are die cut from Crafter's Companion black glitter card.  I used black foam tape to mount the lace heart, all the fussy cut rose pieces and the black silk ribbon to the card.


Closed the card looks like a wicked box of chocolates.


Closer look at the base of the easel card.


Thanks for stopping by to see today's featured project, I hope I've inpsired you to come and join the celebration😘

Happy Hopping!
