Rose card.

I recently discovered a new sketch challenge blog called, 'Critter Sketch Challenge Blog', and this week is their very first challenge! The sketch challenge also included using the colour red anywhere on your card or layout.


I've been trying to use up stuff that's been sitting on my desk for way too long lately, so used this image by Penny Black. I water-coloured it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and sponged the edges with TH Antique Linen Distress Ink. My RED element is the Stampin' Up Ruby Red cardstock, also used SU Always Artichoke cardstock, the cream folded card is from Pedigree Paper.

Other supplies: Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder, Kaiser cream pearls, cream crocheted trim, Nestabilities dies, greeting by Stamp-It.
