Coral Rose Embroidery

It's Team A's turn once again at Through the Craft Room Door. Our sponsor this week is Fred She Said and I picked this absolutely gorgeous Diamond Rose image. As always, this is an anything goes challenge, so let's see what you have for us this week!


The second I saw this image, I fell in love. There are so many different ways you could create a project with this image. I loved the built-in embroidery design. It's a very simple matter to pierce the holes once you print it. I chose to use a coral and green floss for the embroidery, making the leaves green and the swirls coral. I printed a second version of the diamond on pear pizazz card stock from Stampin' Up! and cut it along the outside of the marks and popped it up using thing pop dots. I then colored clear crystals with my Copic marker YR68 and outlined the diamond shape with them. I brought the rose into my Silhouette Cameo and traced it. Then I did a print and cut on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers (leaves - G40, G43; rose - YR61, YR65, YR68). Using thicker pop dots, I popped it up on the pear pizazz card stock. Everything was mounted on Calypso Coral card stock base.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
