Three Roses

Three rose cards for you today using a stamp from Paper Inspirations. For all three, I used Stampin’ Up! markers (Rose Red and Always Artichoke) to color the image, then I misted it before stamping.

The first one was done using a sketch from
2 red bananas blog challenge and also for the SplitCoastStampers color challenge – Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Basic Black. I stamped the image on Whisper White and cut it with an Oval Nestability. I sponged black around the edge and also sponged a little on the image to take away some of its stark whiteness since there was no other white on the card. The scalloped mat is Always Artichoke and the background paper is also from Stampin’ Up! The sentiment and mat are punched with a Word Window punch from SU! The image for the second one was stamped on watercolor paper and the sentiment is from Studio G. Patterned paper for the second and third is from Stampin’ Up! The ribbon on the third card is SU!’s Mellow Moss, and I used a SU! ticket corner punch on the image panel and added white brads.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
