Hey all :) I hope everyone had a great week and weekend.

I'm back with my another creation for Visible Image Stamps. This time around, for a bit of fun (kindly or should I say crazily suggested by Sue lol) the DT challenged each other to use certain stamps, or colour schemes etc

Cathi picked my theme which was brown and blue and vintage.

I used the rose from the Isabella Lost Love set, but you can also get a large and small rose as a pair on their own - Roses

I created a rose bouquet using this stamp, archival ink and some simple masking. Using the flower head and stem from the thankyou set, I created the spray bits in the background and the rose stems.

I used alcohol ink mixed with water to paint the roses and give the nice washed out look, I then used it mixed with a little less water to add in some shade.

I die cut some shapes, out of cream card to make a large flower and distressed the edges.

Each paper layer was distressed around the edge, including the vase.

Some pearls in the corners and used to create a swirl and it was all done :) I hope Cathi likes my take on her theme.

Materials used:
Visible Image stamp set - Isabella Lost Love or Roses / Thank you set
White/cream card
Black Archival ink
Sailboat Blue Alcohol Ink
Gold Ribbon
Sizzix flower die
Teaparty paper
Ivory Pearls
Distress Inks
