Red rose

   We have the start of another challenge at Eureka Stamps. The theme this week is the colour red. I have used digi number 20901 (rose) and coloured it using Promarkers. I cut it out using a Spellbinders label 4 die and whilst it was still in the die dusted the edges using distress ink. I drew round the outside of the die on red mirri card and cut it out  to use as a matting for the image.
   I reduced the flower head and repeated it to create a strip of roses. Again I coloured them in the same way and matted it onto red mirri card.
   I dusted the edges of a rectangular piece of white card with distress ink and wrapped a ribbon  from a past Christmas card around the bottom of it before matting it onto textured red card.
   I attached the main image using double sided tape and the strip using foam pads to create a variation in depth.
