Classic Rose and some news

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Here we at the start of a new week. I have really enjoyed my  half term but it back to reality now.

Now for my  lovely crafty news. I am thrilled to say that I have asked to join the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog Design team. This is my first card for them. Sometimes I will have digi stamps to use but this time the theme was "Anything Goes".


This 7" x 7" card started with the stamped image which is the Classic Rose by Heartfelt Creations. The other papers I used were in my stash and yes there are buttons on this card too. 


I stamped the image with Black Archival and then I heat embossed it with a clear powder. I put some Distress ink on my craft mat and added some water and I applied the ink to the image with a delicate water colour brush. I mounted the image onto a thin black mat.


I used a Sue Wilson  die to cut out the tag. I cut it twice once in pink and once in white I trimmed the white one so that there was a pink border. The sentiment was cut with a Tattered Lace die. The ribbon is from Creative Expressions and is the  Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon in Dusky Pink


This is the result of a mistake I made when I was stamping. I stamped with black archival but then I heat embossed with a white powder ( all the little pots look very similar). I don't really like wasting anything so I coloured it with distress ink and I used it on the inside of the card like a watermark. 


I hope that you have a good week and have time to join in the challenge at Crafts Galore Encore.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
