Christmas Rose

Left: Card.  Right: Canvas
Yes I know it is only June but my new embossing folders arrived this morning, and I just had to play!

I experimented with card and canvas.  After embossing, both the black card and the small canvas had a thin coat of black gesso applied first.  I then applied silver gilding wax, before painting, but then decided to apply green/yellow Pebeo DYNA paint to the raised bits of the leaves with my finger.

The flowers and leaves were then painted with the iridescent DYNA paints in various colours. However, I did apply a bit of pale cream acrylic to inner parts of the petals before blending in the pink DYNA.

Finall, I went over the embossed bits again with a little gilding wax.
