Every rose has its thorn
I made this card for a specific challenge - to make a card with a song of your choice in mind. I chose: every rose has its thorn by Poison. I had just seen a documentary about the band on MTV and this beautiful ballad got stuck in my head. As soon as I saw the challenge and started singing the song I thought of this image - Love is gone from plate #29. It's very goth and rock'n'roll, don't you think?.
I started by choosing matching papers. I had a small rosy panel that I matched with a stripey one from BG. I then coloured my image with coordinating promarkers. I wanted the circular part of the sketch to look like a rose so I cut out circles in different shades and sizes. Then I assembled them so they would look like a rose. To accentuate the detail I added a small piece of leaf-ribbon in the left lower corner. It was white, but I coloured it with my promarkers to match. The final touch was some glitter to the wings and rose and pearls in the corners of the card.
