Cottage Rose

Stampin' Up announced this year's retirement list and of course several items I had on my wish list were on it.
Luckily last week was free shipping as well so I placed my "must have" order.
In preperation of the arrival of said order I ventured into my craft room and tried to tidy up a little.
This led to a re-icovery of long neglected stamp sets.

Amongst them one of my first SU sets; Definitely Decorative Cottage Rose.
With the recent aquisition of several SU stamp pad sets I decided this was the time to revisit this oldy but goody.

Over the last few days I create several lovely rose cards and thought I'd share them with you. These are great for Mother's Day, Thank you cards, Weddings, birthdays ... etc.
Here is a quick preview:

 
I love the versatility of this stamp set. And dispite my being rather too lazy to use my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the image (I tend to guess at the placement) the rose always looks good.

I used the emboss resist technique on this card for the back ground and greeting.
I stamped the french script background with versa mark on my white card base. Then embossed with white embossing powder. I then applied the Crushed Curry ink to the centre with a sponge dauber. Next I applied Crumb Cake ink and then along the edges the sepia black. I then wiped everything with a baby wipe to fully expose the embossed script. Same procedure was used for the greeting.
