A Rose By Any Other Name!

Hello Everyone, and how are you today, well I hope, but if not I hope you will feel beter soon.

Gosh the days are going by so fast, I can hardly keep up with what day it is.  A quiet weekend for us, sometimes that's just what you need.

We are however away to the Edinburgh Jazz Festival later in the week staying with our friends Dale and Stewart, so I am really looking forward to catching up wih them.  So that means I won't be commenting, although I have scheduled my CCC for this Sunday.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments of my last card and your good wishes for our friend's health, you are all very kind.

If you remember me telling you I went to a Sheena Douglass demo with Patricia and Hazel a few weeks back, well I bought this stamp and one of the techniques she was using was foiling, with a Pebeo Paste and Pebeo Foiling papers. I didn't buy the foil at the time as I thought it would be just something else that would lie in the cupboard, but then I found these things in Hobbycraft and decided to have a go.

It doesn't show up well but the out line of the rose is foiled in gold and then the rose itself is coloured with Imagination Craft's Starlight Paints, I diluted Fushia and Orange Oxide together with a little water, and green for the leaves.
I,m afraid that I can't remember the make of the frame, I think it could be Die'sire, but not sure. Chocolate Centura Pearl card and some gold lace. I felt it didn't need anything else.

It's been a dull wet day again, not good for taking least that's my excuse for today.

That's me for now folks, must be cupa time, so take care of yourselves and see you soon,

Beautiful Kate, I was in Adrian's this morning and a lady from Ellen was in buying, Adrian was saying he is delighted to think folk from up north are getting to know he has the shop. This rose stamp is stunning and you have done a lovely job of colouring it. Hazel X

This is gorgeous Kate, such a beautiful rose. It's really hot down south today and my water buts are empty - not good for the garden.
Have a fabulous time in Edinburgh.

A beautiful card Kate, love the image and the mix of Starlight paints you have used to colour the rose. It has been very hot and sunny here, Hubby got all 3 of our lawns cut before the heavy rain arrives. Have a wonderful time with your friends at the jazz festival.
