Roses in Bloom (by Lesley Ebdon)

Wow, where is this year going???  I can't believe it's 6 months since it was last my turn as a 'part-timer' on the blog and here we are over half way to (dare I say it) Christmas!

Anyway, today I have a very feminine card to share with you using a colour combination I love but rarely use.  I've used some of the fabulous DecoArt Antiquing Cream, acrylic chalk paints and Archival Ink for stamping.


The background is created with a selection of chalk acrylic paints scraped on randomly with a credit card, followed by stencilling and a little stamping.  The roses are coloured with the same paints plus a few highlights of Inktense Pencils.

As always there are more details of how I created my card over on my own blog and I'd love to see you over there but the stamps I used are Crackling Rose, another rose from the Harlequin Rose A4 set, small swirl stamp from Artistic Affirmations and sentiment from Words of Inspiration.

See you again next Wednesday with something very different to this card ;-).

Hugs
Lesley  Xx


I added some delicate dried flower sprays and pearl trim from my stash.
