One form afar


By the magic of Blogger, this ones comes to you via Split in Croatia and is one of the samples I created for my friend Ruth at A Passion for Stamps using her beautiful rose stem image.

I stamped a background using Hero Arts S5264 Antique Flower Background with Hero chalk ink soft sand and coloured and decoupaged the rose with Copics. The DP is Kaiser and the two panels of Core dinations embossed and sanded. I made the two flowers from plain cream paper and added some glitter to the edges. The frame is cut from Grand Nesties four.

I love the way you've balanced the floral embellishing with the two top corners & the flower is a real beauty - lovely to see a yellow rose. Greens are my absolute favourite ........ but then each colour becomes my favourite when I see it.
