Rose of Love

Morning All 

Thought I would do this early as I am busy today 
doing my talk !!!

Boy it took me all day yesterday to
puzzle out how to make buttons with links for the slide shows.
Got there in the end. :) Fingers Crossed the Camera club likes my show.

Here is my card for today - using up stamped images from an earlier

I have used a rubber stamp which I coloured with 
watercolour paints.

I used the stamping card again this time as 
I find this type of art work - work for me.

Using my watercolour pens I gave a bit more detail in the flowers and then
used Clarity Stamp brushes with blue distress ink tried to highlight
the rose giving it a bit of a halo

Cut down the image to make a square card today

Added a sentiment of Love from Craftwork cards which I had given a
very light brush with blue.

mounted onto blue backing card onto a white card blank.

I would like to enter it for the following


Thank you for popping in and look forward 
to hearing from you again

Just packing up my bags ready for the off to my talk today,
will have lunch by the river today. Time to
chill before the afternoon talk.

Nothing better than watching water drift along to
calm the mind, I find.

Well have a good day yourselves
