Flourishes Release ~ "Roses are Red"

Howdy all!  I'm back aging this week to share the second of 3 fabulous NEW Flourishes stamp sets for our January release!  Here's a little peak at the newest stamp release. This set is called...

This is an amazing stamp set!  Not only is it perfect for your Valentine's Day cards but it could be easily  used to create "love" inspired cards, birthday greetings or lots of other fabulous creations!  Check out my three cards today...

Pink Roses on Scalloped Hearts
For each of my cards I used the fabulous "Devoted" paper collection from Carta Bella.   I began each card by die cutting out my scalloped label shape from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and stamping my bouquet of roses image within the frame using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink ~ my favourite ink!!!

Pink Roses on Red
Then I coloured all the stamped images using Copic markers:   RV11 from the Tea Rose Collection, G20, G21 & G24 from the Leaf Green Collection, G40 from the Pistachio Collection, B91 and B93 from the Blue Jean Collection and RV10,  Once coloured, I used some Ranger "Walnut Stain" on a sponge applicator and lightly sponged each image - to add a bit of antiquing.  Then I sponged on some white ink to soften each focal image.

I added a simple piece of twine and a silver heart button to each one for little bit of shine.
