Rose trees

Hi there, I really enjoyed working with all the new stamps, and Rose Tree is such a beautiful stamp I couldn't resist using it 3 times on this card

I've created a brayered scene with the Rose trees in the foreground and a fairy castle in the background. Actually the castle is really a spooky Halloween stamp from 'Howling Moon' but I've wanted to transform it into a fairy castle for ages. The foliage along the top is from Wisteria Lane, another of the new stamp sheets, as is the delicate grass around the bottom of the trees. The scene is brayered with Memento inks and the Rose Trees are coloured with promarkers.  I love memento inks for brayer work. The butterfly is also from Rose Tree, stamped on acetate and glittered. More details of how I created this card can be found on my blog.

I think you're going to love this months new releases, my talented team mates have come up with some stunning samples again this month so watch out for them over the next few days
