Hello everyone. More time to craft today, so I have created a card using my new Altenew ‘Antique Roses’ stamp set:
I began by stamping the flowers using Altenew ‘Gentleman’s Gray‘ oval inks, using all four colours for the flowers themselves, then using the black ink for the centre detail. I did the same with the leaf clusters, but these are only three layers, so I used only the lighter three inks.
The background grid is from Waffle Flower, a die I have had for a while, but never used, and cut out of a grey card stock.
The sentiment is from MFT – a very well loved and used stamp set…….
Here is a photo where my actual rose bush is casting a shadow on the card – quite fitting, I think:
The only part of my garden I have anything to do with, and don’t let the gardener anywhere near, is my rose bush and little miniature rose garden. (I let him do all the heavy garden work – but my roses are sacrosanct) These roses smell absolutely gorgeous, especially in direct sunlight where you can catch the aroma just by walking past.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Fusion card challenge – photo colours as inspiration
Seize The Birthday – birthday with the option of flowers
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – add a die cut
Daring Cardmakers – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – (one background die cut, 2 word sentiment, three roses, 4 leaf clusters, 5 colours – 4 greys and a black)
