Soul Of The Rose Card

As a beginner, it hasn't taken me long to see that it's not just about making cards - but about learning some photography tips as well, so apologies in advance. I'll try natural light next time! Lots to learn...

This image is Soul of The Rose. It's an image in the public domain which I downloaded for another art project I never finished. I've recycled it to use the image here.

I used Twinkling H2O highlights, to add a bit of colour and glimmer. I do love my Twinkling H2O's! I still wanted to keep the old fashioned black and white photo effect, so didn't colour all of the image.

I've layered the image onto card and distressed the edges. Gold mirror card has been layered onto a purple background embossed with the Cuttlebug. Gold cord on ribbon is a favourite embellishment of mine as it seems to "lift" a card. It seems to add that extra touch. For a bit of extra bling, I've added 3 purple rhinestones too.
