Rose in a Bottle!

Good Afternoon and I hope you're enjoying the lovely weather we have here today.

I've been having a play this afternoon and made this card for the Less is More Challenge.  It wasn't until I looked at the photo and realised I had used four stamps not three!

I folded an A6 sized card lengthways and rounded off the top right hand corner.

I used Koi watercolour pens for colouring the image.

The stamps and sentiment are from a Clearly Besotted set and after painting the rose I die cut it with the matching dies and raised it on sticky pads.

Finally I added a few Papermania shimmer dots for a bit of sparkle.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

  4. I too have this set (founded in a magazine), but not the matching die, and my fussi-cut isn't very accurate :D You have made a fabulous CAS with this rose and the dots are a very pretty touch, perfect to add interest!
