Retro Roses


Good morning! Well, back to work wasn't so bad, but was I tired last night!! This is a card I made over the weekend (when I had energy!).
This is actually a Magnolia stamp called Retro Roses. It is from the Summer 2008 Shabby Chic collection. This one is stamped on Hot Press water color paper and water colored. I'm not sure what black ink I used, but it was the WRONG one because I got some running when I used my reinkers to water color. Oh well, I like it anyway and maybe it's not too noticeable!
The paper is more of the new Graphic 45, Fashionista. I made a lot of shabby black cards this weekend. I decided to use Kiwi Kiss with this one for a different look.
I love the look when you leave the shape in the nestability and sponge. You get that nice, clean edge. Have you tried it yet?
Well, I have to get some photos emailed. I have had the privilege of designing for another company! The news will be out in a few days!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good Tuesday!
Cheryl

Hey Cheryl,

Congratulations on getting the job to design for another company. Your work is sooo good no wonder you were invited!!

I like your card - have never seen the roses. Studied the picture a lot and definately couldn't see any running of black ink. Very pretty!!
