Wild Tangelo Twist Rose

This week's Friday Mashup challenge is all about background or something 3-D or both.  For my background I dug out one of my favorite Tim Holtz stamps and stamped a wood background to showcase my flower.  To color the rose, I stamped the Tangelo Twist ink pad down on my craft mat, spritzed the ink with water then, laid the flower in the diluted ink.  After drying the rose with my Heat Tool, I sprayed it with some Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist to give it a little sparkle.  As you can tell, I still need to get a light of my photo tent.  The picture is a little dark and does not show off the true color of the flower.  It is much prettier in real life.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Marsha, your card is beautiful! Love the dark background with the orange flower. I'll have to try the technique you used to color your flower sometime. Sounds messy, but some of the best creations come from the messes we make. :) Thanks for sharing with us at the Friday Mashup.

    1. Thanks, Sara. Yes, it's a little messy. Before I purchased my silicone craft mat, I used paper place mats. Can you imagine how messy that was? :-)

  2. Marsha, that flower is GORGEOUS!! I love the bright orange color. You did a great job. Thanks for playing with the Friday Mashup!

    1. Thank you, Lynda. While I'm not fond of orange, Stampin' Up!'s Tangelo Twist is super pretty.
