Roses are Rainbow?

Hello All,

For today I will be playing along with Twofer Card Challenge. This is my first time participating for Twofer. I am pretty sure I followed all the rules 😊. So without further ado, here is my card for today, enjoy.

The stamp I used is a rose background from Peddler's Pack. I wanted the rainbow to be whimsical and playful but still getting the seriousness of the message. The other card I stamped the image and embossed in white. My water brush and waterbased color markers did the rest of the work.
The camo effect was done by embossing the stamp in white and then used a water-based marker and an aqua pen to color it in. Die cut the letters and popped them up using two layers of craft foam. I thought the black banner was the perfect touch.
This version was done simply by coloring the image with Copic markers. I cut out a slice of the image and die cut 'together' and stamped 'forever'. I laid the negative strip with the die cut word back where I originally cut it and carefully placed the sentiment in its exact spot. The effect I was going for was by visually connecting the image through the sentiment. I think this is well demonstrated by looking at the letters 'g', 'e', and 't'.
This is what the stamp from Peddler's Pack looks like:
One word: stunning!

Twofer Card Challenge: Challenge #3- Blossoms

I was all set and ready to go with the 'blossoms' challenge when I suddenly asked myself, 'What exactly is the difference between a flower and a blossom?' (please don't laugh I seriously had no idea.) So I looked it up and found that a blossom is a flower that grows on a tree or a bush. With that new knowledge, I went along with my original plan; I started stamping roses which are rather thorny but do grow on a bush!! 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

Gasp! These are incredible, Shawna! Goodness, they look more like works of art for a gallery than cards! The bold rainbow colors of the image and the word "together" just knock my socks off! And your second card with the camouflaged You is completely romantic!!

I'm glad the prompt "blossom" worked for your roses! I didn't even know the definition and I didn't mean for it to mean anything other than a fancy way to say "flower," any kind of flower. That'll teach me to try and be cute and different, haha! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #3! Hugs, Darnell

Oh my goodness! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this stamp. It's abstract, intricate, and incredibly lovely. These are more like works of art than cards - I'm blown away by these. The rainbow is fantastic, and the subtlety of the camouflage card is simply beautiful. I'm very impressed. Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

What fabulous cards! I love the rainbow rose design and layout of that card. And, the second one with the rose is equally as awesome! You certainly did a fantastic job on these. Thanks for joining the Twofer Challenge #3.
