I Love Roses, thanks Carol

'I Love Roses' is at the moment my new favourite stamp set from Flourishes. The Timeless Tuesday challenge over on the Flourishes Blog, is to use your favourite set. Let me tell you picking my favourite set was EXTREMELY difficult. I love all their sets.

At the moment I have not yet purchased this set but I would like to say a very big thank you to Carol Southern for sending me some pre stamped images.
Carol and I are both addicted to the Flourishes range and we have just done a swap amongst our selves. I hope Carol likes what I have sent her.

The Rose is stamped in Black ink and then I coloured this rose using Prismacolor pencils and have blended the colors together using odourless mineral spirits. I have used 3 different shades of red for the flower.
Here is a close up
I finished the card off by using Bazzill cardstock and Designer Paper by Kaiser Craft. (from their Christmas range).
I have embellished the card using a buckle cut from the spellbinders range and threaded it with 2 sizes of organza ribbon.
In Australia Flourishes stamps are available from Heavenscent Crafts

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter
Until Next time
Inking of you all
