Engagement card...

First I drew  a rose and gave it a quick wash with watercolour paint.

then I shaded it with prisma pencils. Next I colored the background using neocolours which blend so beautifully.  I then masked off the rose and stamped a script image all over the background.

I added 2 small kraft tags and a heart and lace at the bottom, and rubbed some silver wax around the edges. Finally i mounted it all to a square,white card blank.


  1. Gorgeous rose Darcy..I'm sure they'll love this card :D XXX

  2. Came over to carry on my postcard journey but had to stop and say this is just beautiful..Love the purple background against the red of the rose..gorgeous..Esther xx

  3. Darcy, this turned out beautiful! How did you mask off the rose? just with paper?

  4. This is lovely Darcy and even better as you've drawn it yourself! Respect!! I so want to join in you challenge, I've got the stamps and the idea ready for this week but there just are not enough hours in a day
    What a great idea it is!
