Rose Blush Stamp

I absolutely love the new Rose Blush Stamp by IndigoBlu and I knew straight away it was perfect for my Mum-in-Law's Mother's Day card.


The background is Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks, water and a touch of Glimmer Mist.  Its very delicate as I wanted the main image to really stand out.  The image and the letters are coloured with the same inks using a paintbrush and water then I went over them with clear Wink of Stella..  The stamping is done with Versafine and clear powder.  The alphabet I used is by IndigoBlu and is from the Circus Alphabet and the butterfly is punched card covered with the Wink of Stella.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
IndigoBlu - Spring Blossom's
That's Crafty - Inky Antics (I have already entered this one twice but you can enter upto three times so I couldn't resist!)

If you have time, please pop over and have a look at these fab challenge blogs.  Thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it.  I will try and get round when I can.  Sorry its not often enough, my Hubby and I both have ongoing health problems which are making things a bit difficult!  Take care.  Christine xx

What a pretty card and so sparkly when you see the close up. I love the font you used for MUM, very fancy and ornate. It suits the card well.
