Rose Garden - PPA294

Today is Pals Paper Arts challenge, PPA294. This week is a sketch challenge, created by featured designer, Dawn Tidd.



























I turned the layout 90°, and created a Rose focal point.







































I created a sponged background with several ink pad colors, die-cut it with the small rose from the Rose Garden Thinlits. A small rose was die-cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock. The sponged background, die-cut pieces, were inserted in the Blackberry Bliss die-cut Rose. Love this look!
A background of Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, to set off the Blackberry Bliss color. A pretty, Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon Bow at the top. A white heat embossed sentiment, a few Rhinestones and Daffodil Delight DSP, finish it off.

Everything Eleanor

For the Global Design Project colour challenge #GDP029, I used the Everything Eleanor stamp set. I have been wanting to stamp the pretty flowers and watercolor them with the Aqua Painter. Who can resist the cute bird?!! Once I stamped the flowers, sentiment and bird, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. This really brings the colors to life. I love pretty flourishes, and this stamp set has one of the prettiest. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you.
