Basic Grey Rose is a Rose




Even though I say this myself - isn't this gorgeous? This is one of the free stamp sets I chose for achieving my first Stampin' Start goal and I love it.


I chose Basic Grey for the card base and stamped the small flower outline from the Rose is a Rose set in Basic Grey ink to give a watermark effect. I then stamped the main flower images in Bashful Blue and Basic Grey using the two-step stamping technique with the help of my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. The leaves were stamped with Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke, again using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. I cut the images out and layered them on Whisper White, popping some up on dimensionals. The corners looked a bit bare, so out came the Mat Pack and the Paper Piercer for a little bit of paper pricking in the corners. I then added layers of Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss, and added a knot of Basic Grey taffeta ribbon.


I will definitely be using this stamp set again!
