Hello and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge.
I have to say I'm super proud of myself for not only making my post on time...but actually early. Don't faint...I know. I have been playing with wood a lot lately. I got myself a scroll saw. Something I've wanted for years, and so I was having fun creating with it. Making fun wood cut outs and painting them all while teaching myself to do this. Yea.....I'm about 20+ years behind this trend but like I said it's always been something I've wanted to do. So one thing led to another and someone approached me and now I'm finding myself prepping for my first big market booth and it has been pretty much consuming all my spare time. So that means that the stamping has been lacking lately. I'll find a balance once I get through this market and decide if I want to do a monthly booth or not.
So that is why I have been sporatic. Now back to the post.....
We are featuring the stamp set Rose Wonder. I went with the stamp set and the matching Rose Garden Thinlits. I started with a base of Night of Navy and added a layer of Soft Sky. My top layer is Whisper White. I cut out the rose twice. Once in Garden Green and once in Pacific Point. From the PP cut I trimmed away the leaves and layered the rose section on top of the GG cut. I then used my Aqua painter to color in the images, making them lighter and darker to give it some dimension....(I have to say I'm not good at this part...I don't have the eye for it) But I try lol I stamped the label in NN and cut it out with the thinlits. I then stamped the sentiment in PP and popped it up on my card with dimensionals. I have discovered a fun lil splatter stamp in the Timeless Textures stamp set and used it to add a lil something around the rose. This could be my next favorite stamp lol
So this is my card....be sure to hop on over to Terri's Blog and Stace's Blog to see what they have come up with this week.
