Harlequin Rose!!!

Am I ever a pushover for sheets of grey rubber?
When I first saw the Harlequin Rose set from Elusive Images I have to say that I wasn't over keen because I have enough rose stamps already. So how come that half an hour after ours being delivered yesterday I had bought them, ripped open the packet and made this card ready for a class today. Honestly I am such a tart when it comes to pretty stamps.........and I had the Eccentric Edwardian too.......and tomorrow our Penny Black stamps are being delivered. I shall be broke for!!!
Just to let customers know.....we now have a selection of Glimmer Mists in and more to follow.

Anyhoo....I only used the small rose stamp as the class was actually on using the Cuttlebug but the image was perfect to use with the script folder and vellum for a romantic card.
I just stamped and embossed it in black and painted the flower with a wash of pink Brilliance and the leaves with Adirondack Meadow. Simple but such a beautiful image.
Started on another project today with the bigger stamp and also did one using the Eccentric Edwardian which I will post tomorrow as it is still drying at the moment.

I've had a couple of very busy days so I am going to relax with DD for a couple of hours now and watch Larkrise to Candleford on DVD.....I may even scoff a cream egg..........what do I mean 'may'.........I definitely!!!

Thanks for dropping by today.


  1. I had a similar reaction to this stamp plate Sheila but I succumbed in the end Tee Hee!

    I don't think I've commented on your blog before but I added you to my list of favourites about a week ago and am thoroughly enjoying my visits and finding loads of inspiration. Your cards are really great.

  2. The stamp goes so well with the script embossing x
