Daisy vs. the Rose

Happy Thursday and the last day of Innovative Stamp Creations August release! I have two for you today:

Monochromatic Dream:

I just can't help myself - I LOVE black and cream cards! The background image is a large shipping tag that I embossed one side with one of Tim's texture folder and rubbed black ink over. The Daisy from the Nature Silhouette III was stamped in black and I think this really makes the detail pop on the image! The hinge is from one of Tim's Sizzix dies. If you look at the next pic you can see the "Dream" stamp that I am so in love with!!!

Vintage Rose:

The background was created using the large image in the Sketch of Roses II stamp sheet - I inked with Antique Linen ink and then used markers to color some of the background. Since I used the AL distress ink I was able to add some gold embossing powder at the top. The hinge is the faux metal technique.

The Rose is a FABULOUS grunge paper ribbon Rose - can I say easy - here's a link to the tutorial on Lynn's blog - give it a try you'll be surprised how fast you can make these!!! The only thing that I did not like was the added liquid pearls on the rose - I'll skip that step next time!

Take a little to time see the the other designers created:

Happy Creating!

If the links to not links london lead to the maximum increase in traffic discount links of london then what value would the links truly links of london silver possess. They would end up being little more than window dressing at worst and minimally impactful links of london sale at best. That is not what a new online business links london jewellery looking for a spike in revenues would wish to links london bracelet yield.Also, when you are running a new business, your london links charms time will limited as there will be scores of other responsibilities links of london watches sale competing for your time. That means you won't be able to discount links of london rings do what is necessary to individually place your own links on cheap links of london necklaces the internet. Rather than do so, you could buy links and delegate the work to others.
