Long Time, No Play.

Hi guys, well it’s an age since I’ve joined in a dare with my old DT buddies over at the The Daring Cardmaker’s so this week I’ve decided is the week to get back into it and playing along for fun.

The theme this week is the Flower of the Month series that runs all year and that means Roses or Honeysuckle because they are the flowers for June.

I’ve used sketch #118 from Inspirational Card Sketches and I’m hoping it’s a lucky omen because 118 just happens to be my house number.


Here's what I've done with it.


I’ve covered my card blank using two K & Co papers, stamping on the lighter one with a VersaMark ink pad and giving it a dusting of eye shadow (my version of chalks). The ribbon, complete with ribbon slide was wrapped around the paper as I was sticking it to the card.

I stamped the rose using Black Memento Ink and coloured it with ProMarkers. It was then cut into an oval, the edges distressed and inked and then it was layered and mounted onto the card.

Next I added a few finishing touches; Gold Card Candi and a Birthday Greeting from Craftworks Cards,some Crystal Lacquer to the petals and leaves and a rose charm which incidentally was Silver to start with but I've coloured it with a Gold Krylon pen.

Your rose is beautiful, Sue. I meant to say thanks for the eyeshadow tip, I'd never have thought of that and I have some I don't use in the drawer. They'll find a new use now.
