Red Roses

Welcome

I recently bought a magazine with this stamp from Visible Image as a freebie with it.  I pondered how to use it for a while, and came up with this card.


I stamped the rose three times, masking as I went, and then coloured them with chalk - I was not happy with the outcome, so stamped another rose, fussy cut it and mounted it with foam dots over the front rose in the original grouping, and added some clear KindyGlitz.


The background behind the images was coloured with chalk, and the panel was mounted over some burlap for contrasting texture.


A sentiment was stamped and a ribbon tag cut around it, with some sponging done before the die was removed.


The final detail was a ribbon bow, that wanted to turn itself inside out as I fought it to keep the spotted side to the front!

Love how you did this card Maxine. the fringes are a real unique feature. They focus the eye into the roses. The rose are very nicely colored. Raising the one rose give them a nice extra dimension. The bow and ribbon brighten the card considerably. Beautiful.

Wow- so pretty! I love the dimension and the shimmer on the roses. The burlap is also a pretty accent- and love the cute dotted bow!

Beautiful rose and so much dimension on it. Love the way you mounted it on the burlap too.
As far as the bow and trying to get the dots to all show....um....you did a great job on it! I usually just give up on mine and let it be! LOL!

I love how you have grouped the roses. I think that last fussy cut flower was the perfect addition. Thanks for sharing with us at Pile it On.

How wonderfully clever you are. I think this is beautiful. Love the way you popped up the one rose over the bunch. I really thought that was all one stamp. Using the burlap was a great idea.
