Hello And Farewell To A Wild Rose

by Joanne James1. May 2021 21:13

As is customary these days, I'm here with a late and quick post on a Saturday evening with a card I made using Narelle's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the inspiration photo at Just Add Ink:


I loved Narelle's sketch, although the splatters made me nervous (mine are so subtle you can barely see them!) and the inspiration photo at Just Add Ink was just asking for a final farewell to the blousy flower in the 'To A Wild Rose' stamp set - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I paired my wild rose with a diecut from the Birds and More Dies to add interest to my circle element and stamped my flower in Daffodil Delight and So Saffron, with the leaves in Garden green and outlined in the new in-color, Evening Evergreen. I added some fine splatter with my So Saffron Stampin' Write marker, a heat embossed sentiment and a trio of white elegant faceted gems to finish:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project (or two!) for tomorrow's new challenge over at The Paper Players where I am the hostess this week. Until then, happy stampin'!

I see we're on the same wavelength again. Great sketch, isn't it! I love your farewell to A Wild Rose. The circle die you've used is fabulous.

Simple and elegant Joanne! I do love the extra die cut detail on the window and that you backed the window with yellow. It really supports your soft rose. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

I realize I've missed a few posts here, Joanne!  This is just lovely...soft and serene!
