Sunday Stamper - Week 326 - Paper Roses

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Thank you all for your grand entries to last weeks musical challenge - it was great to see all your different interpretations of the way to use music in your art.   The theme this week is PAPER ROSES.  You can interpret the challenge how you like: make your own roses, jazz up some bought paper roses, stamp and layer roses... the choice, it be yours!  To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 27th September 2014.



My entry this week is a tag I made a few weeks ago using the new Twas The Night Before Christmas Graphic 45 papers.  And yes, there's one of my big old paper roses... as you all know, I LOVES making these roses... and yep, they do feature a lot on my creations... I am a great believer in sticking with what you like :O)  After layering up the papers onto the tag, I whizzed around the edges with Frayed Burlap DI to tone the white cut edges in... and added Tattered Leaves to the rose, along with a few bits and bobs to jazz it up.  So, where's the stamping???  Well, you see that ickle tag tucked in the middle?  The stamping is actually on this, just poking out of the bottom of the little tag... I know, not much there but it is ... proving you only needs a smidge of stamping to join in!


So!  What you got planned for today?  I am away teaching at JLT Crafts in Hinckley today... we are going to be getting inky and messy making a mixed media board... it will be fun!   Have a great day all... thanks for looking!  TTFN
