SARAH KAY ROSES GARDEN


This card was made for Sarah Kay Challenge - Week 13 "True Blue", and for this Challenge, I chose to use Sarah Kays's lovely stamp "Rose's Garden". This was the first time I have used this image, and I was really pleased with the outcome, using as ever my Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes. I cut the stamped image with my Oval Nesty, and also cut a Scalloped Oval from pale blue pearlescent cardstock. The base card was covered with a blue floral backing paper (sorry no name, found it in my craft stash!). I then took two scraps of pale blue hammered card, and ran them through my Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder, and for added interest, then rubbed over a blue chalk eye inkpad over the top, to make the "dots" stand out more.
I then placed this gorgeous blue "dotty" ribbon over the two pieces of card, and finished the card off with a blue flower centered in the middle with a blue "dotty" brad to go with the ribbon, and finally three blue buttons.
Thank you for visiting my Blog, and I hope you will come back and visit again soon! Happy Crafting X
