Dog Rose Card project from Gwen Fletcher

Take time to stamp the roses

Burgundy ink pad, Dog rose, Smell the roses and dots & dashes stamps.
Stamp the dog rose corner twice, onto some patterned paper with the ink. Cut out one full design and then the three single flowers as well.

On an 8cm square piece of white card, stamp the corner again in Burgundy. 
Stamp the sentiment and the dots & dashes around the open corner. 
I love this stamp, it is so clever and if you're not very good at doing dots & dashes and struggle to keep them even and straight, then this is perfect. 
I can see this being in my stash as an absolute go-to stamp all the time. 

Now gently blend around the edges with the same ink. 
These pigment inks are so creamy and blend beautifully.( I used a bit of cut 'n dry to do it).


Cut a 12cm square piece of your chosen paper and ink the edges, again using Burgundy. 

Ink the edges of a 12.5cm white square also.

Stamp the single rose all around the edge of a white card, using the second stamped off image for a paler effect. Now blend ink around the edges also.
Mount all the layers together. Attach your cut out corner over the stamped image and shape and attach the single flowers to give dimension. Add a tiny pearl to the centres and you're done.

That is my last post as part of TAKE 5, 
Thank you for join in
