Sunday Stampers _ Roses

It's time for SS again over at Hels' blog. Although the theme is 'Roses' I've only managed 1 rose, but I'm sure the Rose Police won't knocking on my door LOL. As I didn't have any rose stamps, well only a small bunch of roses that I didn't want to use, I thought I'd try to make one of the roses that Hels, Linda and Wendy have made recently. Unfortunately I don't have any grungepaper YET! and it was very difficult to make the petals behave well using matt photo paper :-{ I thought it may be a bit better than using printer paper as it has a bit more substance but not as stiff as some other papers. I used Worn Lipstick distress ink to colour the rose lightly and then inked the petals through some netting. The text stamp is unmounted but I can't remember where it was from.

DS is getting married on Tuesday in Llandudno and this card is for him and his bride-to-be :)
