And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Rose Banner

Hello Friends!  Today I am sharing a set of note cards over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and thought I would share here as well.  I've been having fun with the new Stamp of the Month for April 2018.  Not only is the Rose Banner Stamp Set designed by Nina Brackett beautiful and fun to use, but you can get it for free with a $75 purchase...however, only until the end of April 30th.

Creative Nugget: A background was made using different colors of Oxide inks on mixed media paper.  Texture was added using the Texture Tiles and coordinated ink colors.  The rose image was placed in my Misti tool and stamped with archival ink.  The rose and leaves were then painted with white gesso.  The panel was put back into the Misti and stamped again with archival ink.  A light wash of color was then added to portions of the flower and the leaves using watered down Oxide inks.  Different sentiments from the Rose Banner set were stamped on each card.  Love how the rose image pops against the bold background colors!

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you were inspired!

Both cards are beautifully made Cathy. Love the background colours and tiny touch of texture. Amazing soft colours on the roses. Great result. Thank you so much for sharing how you made these cards and joining us at Just Us Girls this week.
