Rose Copic Coloring ft. STAMPlorations

Hi everyone! I was really inspired by the quote (shown below) from Time Out's challenge, and I thought STAMPlorations' About a Rose set goes *perfectly* with it. So I created this card. Check it out!

I colored the rose with Copic markers. It's a smaller image so adding the details and dimensions within each fold and petal can be a little challenging. (But who doesn't love a little challenge?!) I really enjoyed the coloring process and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The markers I used are listed below from the darkest to lightest shade:
R89 / R85 / R83 / R81
G29 / G05 / YG17 / G21

Then I framed the rose with a gold glitter square that I die cut from two dies. I used the Large and Small Stitched Square Stackables Dies from Lawn Fawn, but you can also cut a frame with an X-Acto knife. For reference, my square is 2.5'' x 2.5''. 

The background is stamped with Stampin' Up's Brushstrokes background stamp with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I also added pieces of crumpled patterned vellum and added some Wink of Stella on top. Then I embellished the card with some DMC metallic thread and a couple of enamel dots from Doodlebug. 

The sentiment is really what prompted me to make this card. It's so neat and goes so well with the cue words. :) I decided to extend the friend theme a little further by turning this card into a pop up card where you can insert a little photo inside. (Click on the video to see how this mechanism works) Here I used a polaroid of my sister and her best friend.  I think it certainly adds a personal touch and is a nice surprise for your friend. (And they totally deserve it!) I hope you enjoyed my creation, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
