I have two cards today using a couple of the beautiful rose designs and a couple of the word stamps.
I really like this bold design with the crackle background called Crackling Rose
The background of the card is simply done by dabbing a couple of Distress inkpads over the card, overlapping each other. You can use a wet paintbrush to smear the colours across the card, and you will still see the texture.
The rose has then been coloured with the same green ink and red.
Best wishes is from the Loving Sentiments set.
I think this would be suitable for a male friend who likes gardening.
This card actually uses several sets of rose stamps and a Loving Sentiment.
Stamps used; Crackling rose, Floribunda net, and rose heads from Harlequin rose.
The background uses the same stamp as my first card, over - stamped several times, with Raspberry Distress ink and then coloured with Raspberry and Dusty Concorde
I selected the single rose heads that I liked and cut them out individually.
These are unusual colours for me to use but I was pleased with the result.
Bye for now
