Sketch of Roses

Roses - sweet smelling, delicate... Aren’t Roses utterly breathtaking?

Today starts the release of Innovative Stamp Creations August Stamp sets. The Sketch of Roses III has a lovely background image approximate size 4 ½ x 5 which lends itself to some many different techniques. You’ll find this line quite versatile! The delicate Roses are so easy to color-in with your favorite medium of choice!

Feminine Rose:

Rose Close Up:

To create the Rose I stamped with Archival ink 5 times and colored with colored pencils and Goo Gone (works like butter to move the colored pencils around - I believe better than Gamsol). The background stamp from the Sketch of Roses III was used on the bottom half of the card with the embossed piece using Texture Folders and Tim's Die cuts. To make Tim's swirls look old I used the small text image from the Mini Ledger set.

The large ledger background was used to create the "tag" and then I added some pink paint on the ornate plate to make it look nice and feminine:

How about a few more clicks to see what the other Creative Architect made with this terrific stamp set!

Hope you are finding time to be creative today!
