Thinking of You

An item on my "wishlist" (or you could say resolution) for 2012, is to be more diligent in using up my craft supplies as well as to ink every stamp I have in my stash.  I reckon it's a little ambitious but guess I have to try.  One great way is to make more effort to participate in challenges ;-)

So, here's the card:


based on this WMS Sketch :
I used papers from Webster's Pages 6x6 pad and stamps from Waltzing Mouse "Roses in Bloom", "Very Vintage Labels 18" and sentiment from "Say It Loud".  The rose is coloured with copic markers R21, R22, R24, YR20 & R30 and adhered with pop dots onto the the Vintage Label.  The label was inked with Memento Angel Pink and rocked with Memento Rhubarb Stalk on the edges.  I added some fancy strings of pearls for some added interest.

Here's a close up of the rose:

Hope you're having a great day!
Kary

Wow, Kary this is an absolute beauty!! I just saw this in the WMS Gallery. Roses in Bloom is one of my favourite sets too - you've coloured that flower so beautifully. Great take on the sketch. Not sure how I'm not following you - but I can soon put that right - off to link myself up to follow you right now!! x
