Roses are pink

Another floral for you today.... 

If you are a follower of mine you will know I love photographic images...  and I just had to crack open the lovely Rose Layers stamp set by Paperbabe that I recently won .With 4 layers and an outline (which I didn't use on this make) the sense of depth is fabulous, provided that you have the right colour inks!

It turns out that I have the same colour in different type of inks (pigment, Archival, Distress Oxide, Memento, Versafine) but not several shades (lighter/darker) of that pink. As I progressed through the stamping, I tried several inks combination and also resorted to 2nd generation stamping.

The stamping did take some time... consider there are 10 roses, and 4 layers per roses and even the cropped ones take as long... but, I think, well worth it!
I made this into a birthday card by adding a sentiment (Everyday sentiment stamp set and Layers Frame & Banners die set both by Julie Hickey Designs) but it would be perfect for Mother's day too (still to come for some countries).

I hope you will like this one do let me know in your comments!

I am entering the Allsorts,  PaperbabeStamping Sensations and We Love Chocolate Baroque challenges.

  2. It's beautiful Christine, I can well imagine how time consuming it was but really worth the effort's. It's like an expensive sheet of wrapping from a certain store in London starting with a 'L', one of my DIL's thinks nothing about paying £20 for a sheet.

    A perfect creation for Stamping Sensations challenge this month, thank you, also for sharing with us at We Love Chocolate Baroque and Allsorts.
