White rose


Hi, I'm finally taking a break from housework to do a bit of crafting! It's hot and windy outside so the washing is drying in record time!

I used my new Penny Black rose die for the first time, and layered the cut out section to give some extra dimension. The flower is painted with a pearl white acrylic paint and the green is a couple of twinkling H2O's.

At The Card Concept there's still a little bit of time left in this colour challenge.

These colours have really grown on me! I think this card is in the Clean and Simple category.

At Addicted to Stamps & More, the theme is anything goes.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, the theme is Mother's Day or special girl.

At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is Happy Mother's Day. You also need to use a manual machine like a Big Shot or a Cuttlebug.

Thanks for visiting :)
