Grey Antique Roses

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:

  1. Grey is one of my favourite colours so fell in love with this straight away. I love flowers in unusual colours and these look so elegant and stylish. And the geometric background adds a lot to the modern look too. So very glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge!!

  2. That’s a very beautiful and elegant card! I had to smile a little bit when you wrote that you used 5 different colours on it šŸ˜‰ … you really did a great job with our 1,2,3,4,5 challenge.
    Thanks for sharing your card with the Daring Cardmakers this week.
