Roses are Red

Over at Imagine That! digis by Kris there are two great challenges to join in with. There is the Creative Playground, which this month is a sketch and there is also one on the Facebook Page which must feature at least one flower and use an Imagine That! digis by Kris image.

Materials used: SAM_2881(watermarked)
Imagine That! digis by Kris – Rose Blessings
X-Press It card
Copic pens
acrylic greeting stamp from stash
Memento Tuxedo black ink pad
x-cut doily die
wax paper
alcohol inks in red and green

The rose is made up from 3 images to give it some dimension, all the images were coloured with Copics before being fussy cut.

The doily mat is made from the wax paper I used to stop card sticking in the die from a previous project and I found it in my stash so decided to use it! The colour is added using alcohol inks and dabbing them on with a felt pad.

The mat and image are attached to an A5 card blank and the greeting stamped at the bottom.

There is still plenty of time to put in an entry to both Imagine That! digis by Kris challenges so why not join in yourself.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
