I Brake for Roses!

Hello stampers!  I have a shabby chic card to share today.  I love to make at least one rose card in June, as it is the birth flower.  When I got this pretty rose stamp that is part of set Half Sheet 137a, I knew it would be fantastic for making your own patterned paper.

And it is!  It is very forgiving too.  I didn’t have any trouble lining it up or anything, I just stamped away in a general pattern using brown ink. I then distressed the entire panel with tea dye distress ink and a sponge applicator.  I also splattered some ink lightly to get some more aging to the panel.

Finally, I added color to the roses and leaves with chalks.  I really am so happy with this background and can’t wait to try it with other colors!

I layered a sentiment from Inspirational Phrases set with some fancy die cuts.  I put this over some lace that was in my stash and put my very last adhesive pearls underneath.  I can’t believe that those are my last pearls, sometimes it seems like you will never use all your embellishments!

I hope you have a wonderful day and keep on stamping!
