Fifth Avenue Rose



Good Monday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all had a great weekend!! I spent some time Saturday and Sunday at my friend and Stampin' UP demo's house, stamping, along with some great friends, we laughed and stamped and ate and had a AWESOME time!!!

While I was there I stamped me off a few of the roses from the Fifth Avenue Stamp set. I love that set and it is on my wish list, but let's be frank here, almost all stamp sets are on my "wish list"!!! LOL!!!

I used Jen's Sketch For you to Try for the layout on this card.

The card base is made with ruby red and that is followed with Shara sand and then some of the textured DS paper from the Sweet Slumber pack. The striped piece below the rose is from the same pack. The sentiment come from the Bella Flower Stamp set. I used some white taffeta ribbon and ruby red brads as well. The rose is stamped on watercolor paper with black stazon and water colored with ruby red ink and my aqua painter. Ruby red is the only color used on the rose, so pretty the variety of pink to deep red you can get with that color. I then cut it out and mounted it onto the top panel with dimensionals. The panel under the rose is ruby red and whisper white card stock that I pierced the corners of with my piercing tool and mat pack.

Well, that is all for today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
