June Rose for MMSC5
Let me just say I love this sketch and I thought it was the perfect layout for the June Rose designed by Vicki Conquest newly released stamp from CDS. I knew I wanted a very classic red black and white color scheme only I used ivory for a more time worn look. I also added the brushed gold metallic to give it a more framed in look. I can't remember who the black with dots dp is by but the ivory dp is hand stamped only with stamps in the June Rose set. It really made a beautiful background paper. I started out with ivory natural paper distressed the edges with scissors, creamy caramel and black ink. I then stamped the verses repeatedly in black and the roses on top of that in riding hood red. This set is great to have just because it makes such a pretty background. The roses were embossed with black ep and water colored with maybe every shade of red and pink I have and even a little yellow! It was all layered up and machine sewn with the gold thread. The triangular halves is always one of my favorite sketches but the halved circles that flip the colors was a really fun twist. I wish my circles had shown up more. I think you guys could have a lot of fun with this sketch, to play along the link can be found in my right side bar, you can also check and see some of the other DT creations with this sketch! Have a great Tuesday!
