Stripes n Roses

This is a very late entry for the PTI Blog Hop today.

pti hop jan 17 black and white pink roses

I used the Sweet Life stamp set and dies for the roses and painted the stripes with Gansai Tambi water colours. These are perfect for bold stripes as they aren’t as transparent as most professional water colours. I used Bristol smooth paper for the first time and I was impressed that it didn’t warp much.

The label shape dies are by Lifestyle Crafts; the cardstock is also by PTI. I tried writing the sentiment with gold leafing paint with a small brush but I’m much, much better with a dip ink pen. I should have used my gold ink and pen instead. Oh well.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Wow, really beautiful. I didn't realize the stripes were painted until I read the post - they looked so perfect at first glance. Very nice job. Thanks for sharing.
