Bird on rose

   It is a long time since I have used mulberry paper, so I thought I would dig it out again. I roughly tore the larger sheet and randomly stamped dog roses over it using one of the stamps from Chocolate Baroques 'Pretty birdcage' set. After lightly colouring the rose petals using Spectrum Noir pencils I matted it onto white card, attaching it with invisible glue dots.
   The main image is stamped from another stamp in the set  and I coloured this using Promarkers. I then cut it out and matted it onto the darker mulberry paper before fixing it to the card.
   I cut anoyher piece of white card in the shape of a tag, stamped it, coloured using Promarkers, threaded a ribbon through a hole I made and attached it to the card using foam pads. I then attached copper peel offs for the sentiment.

  12. This is such a beautifully clever card! I really love all the different shades of color that you used. I also adore the soft edges you created and how the flower pattern is subtle in the background as well as a bold embellishment on the front. Gorgeous work and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
