A rose bouquet

Hi there. I hope you are all ding well this weekend. From snow-deep a week ago, to loads and loads of rain….. I can see the snow-drops and daffodils poking their heads up, and the green leaves for the blue-bells. It is a good job the British plants are hardy enough to cope with the vagaries of our weather.

I spent some time with the Altenew ‘Sweet Rose Bouquet‘ yesterday. I tried the stamp set in multiple colours, as you can see. I didn’t realise until I opened it that the flowers and leaves are all bunched together, several layers for each – (perhaps the ‘bouquet’ part of the title of the stamps should have given me a hint. 🙂

It actually took me quite a bit of time to sort out each of the images, and each of the layers – thank goodness for the Misti for the larger images.

I really do like this stamp set, and I can see many more bouquets being made in the future. Once you have your head around the layers and the positioning….and the Altenew ink sets take matching colours sooooo easy.

Well – unless you get then the wrong way round! I did that with the purple flowers – I stamped the darkest purple on the second layer. So I turned to my blue inks so I could out even darker layers down. So I didn’t make a mistake really – I just have purple and blue roses!

I added sequins as part of one of the challenges – a couple of them did cover some ink marks…..so handy.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
