A Rosey Peek!

SC Layered Rose blk

Shhh, don't tell, but I'm sneaking a peek of one of the new sets coming next week from Innovative Stamp Creations, Sketch of Roses.

SC Layered Rose clsupIt comes with a large background stamp that I stamped 3 times for the layers, then I sponged with Distress inks. I stamped the largest rose in the set, colored it with Copics, masked it and stamped the background stamp again. I cut "out of the box" and, with mask in place, sponged that background.

SC Layered Rose  This is yesterday's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast.

I distressed the edges with my distressing tool. The "black" layer is white Georgia Pacific (yeah, the cheap stuff) that I drug my Black Soot pad around the edges. The card base is also Distress colored with Rusty Hinge.

When it was all done, I gave it several mists of Glimmer Mist.

stamp: sketch of roses-innovative stamp creations
paper: georgia pacific
ink: memento tuxedo black, ranger distress forest moss, crushed olive, rusty hinge, brushed corduroy, black soot
other: copics, distressing tool, foam mounting tape, ribbon, pearl glimmer mist

So, how do you like the "new" look? I've been wanting a 3 column blog and finally bit the bullet, read some instructions and did it! Might still need some fine tuning, but I'm pretty pleased with it!

thanks for stopping!
