Let's Face The Music...

Happy Monday, everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend...but isn't it FRREEZZING out there!! I've finally had to give in to putting the central heating on and breaking out my boots and winter coat!!!

So, once I got over the cold temperatures that have finally hit us, my weekend was full of deadlines and craft but I managed to meet them all, which at times seemed like an impossible task but I did it and I'm so pleased with the creations I've made!! Can't wait to show you all...

But back to today and I thought it would be nice to share one of the cards that I made for a recent QVC show featuring Perfect Pearls. I hope you like it...
The 3D rose is made out of Grungepaper which I misted from a Mini Mister, with a mixture of Distress Ink Reinker in Victorian Velvet, to which I added some of the Perfect Pearls, topped up with water, given a good shake and then misted over the die cut flower petals.
When the rose is completely dry from the Perfect Pearls mixture, I then made it up and using the Perfect Medium pad, lightly brushed the surface before dusting on some more of the Perfect Pearls mica powder.
Finally, I adhered the grungepaper rose to the background, which I made using a combination of a music score stampand a Tim Holtz flourish stamp. I added some die cut flourishes and leaves and then matted it onto some gorgeous script paper from my crafty stash.

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my magazine projects in Making Cards. I can't tell you what a buzz I had from walking into WHSmith today and seeing it there on the shelves!! Can you tell I'm still just a little excited?!?

Hope you all have a lovely evening and stay warm!!
See you tomorrow with another post and something I can't wait for you all to see!!
Love Emma


  1. Hi Emma, you're so right it's FREEZING, I have just put my heating on too, might need a hot water bottle LOL. Love your card, the rose is stunning. Enjoy your week. Tracy x

  2. Absolutely stunning Emma! The colour of the rose is just beautiful! xx

  3. It's not been too bad here today but is now blowing a gale and chucking it down outside, definitely a night for being cosy insde. I think I'll be joining you with the winter coat tomorrow.
    Your card is so elegant and beautiful. I love the music background and your grunge rose is perfect.
    Glad you got all your deadlines met!!

  4. you really do have such a wonderful touch with the distressed look in your cards! they really do give one the feeling they're looking at something hundreds of years here with not only the sheet music but the backing paper! it all just works so well together and the rose is a perfect addition!

    glorious card! :D

  5. Couldn't let this go without a comment Emma. Beautiful card and your rose is stunning.
