Fantasy Stampers - Challenge 6

Good Morning everyone,

What a great week of lovely 'Spring' weather, just perfect for our last challenge over at


Once again we had some fantastic entries, but it's now time for our next challenge and our new theme for the next two weeks is

We would love to see your projects featuring 'Roses' and with Mother's Day creeping up on us, what a prefect opportunity to make a card.

Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

Now this piece is most definitely inspired by the very talented Hels Sheridan

I started with a piece of old recycled card and peeled some bits off to reveal the corrugated bit. I covered it with a coat of cream acrylic paint and then added some distress inks around the edges, before finishing with a little gold embossing powder (just to highlight the outside edge).

The next layer is a piece of music script design paper, which I tore around the edges to keep the shabby feel, before inking the edges with 'Vintage Photo' distress ink. I secured a piece of pretty ivory lace to this before sticking it to my base piece.

The lush roses are by Visible Image and are stamped in Vintage Sepia ink. I stamped each one several times, coloured with 'Ivory' and 'Vanilla' Promarkers, then cut them out and layered them up before adding a little crystal glitter to highlight them.

The sentiment is by Inkylicious and is stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. This is mounted on a scrap of gold netting which I found in my stash.

A few bits of bling and a little die-cut dragonfly finish of my project - hope you like it.

Why not come and join us with your own 'Rose' themed projects - I can't wait to visit your blogs and see.

Big hugz, Jan xx
