I used Steampunk Rose Bug by Rick St. Dennis for this project. Such a unique image! I loved it immediately and thought it would look awesome colored in Sepia tones with a pop of color for the rose. I printed the image on Cryogen White card stock from The Paper Temptress then pulled out my Copic E50's and got to work. The Cryogen White has a lovely shimmer to it! I chose the burgundy as my pop of color to match the Cordovan Leather paper from the Paper Temptress for my pop of color. I also used the Cordovan Leather for the die and for the band across the card. The texture of this paper really is so much like leather. It was just missing that leather smell. =P The embossed layer is the Khaki Ruche (crepe) also from the Paper Temptress. This paper has such a great texture on its own, and then with the embossing it is amazing! The oval behind the rose was cut from a scrap of Opal in card stock weight. It has such a lovely shimmer. You can also buy it from the Paper Temptress. When I pulled out all of my embellishments, I loved the metal flower. It actually had a white pearl brad for the center, which didn't really match all of the creamy tones, so I removed the brad and replaced it with a gold-toned pearl.
