Sweet Pea Stamps - Blue Rose Tattoo

 This is a card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik.  The image is called "Blue Rose Tattoo" and is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image sheet (Sheet 15, Plate 45 - Blue Rose Tattoo comes on the multi-image sheet with Aloha, Restless Thoughts and Carnations of May).

I have coloured the digital stamp with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers, highlighted areas with my Pan Pastels, tore around the image and then inked with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire and Victorian Velvet distress ink.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots, Plain and Simple and Vintage Fantasy.  The papers have been distressed with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet and Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  I have made some flowers using one of the first Marianne Designs flower dies I bought and some scraps of the backing papers.  I have used a Marianne Designs branch embellishment and a Spellbinders butterfly die and rubbed over Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium.  I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, sentiment off the computer, buttons, pearls and organza ribbon.

I really like blue and pink together, but for some reason I barely ever make a card in these colours. But after seeing how beautifully yours turned out I'm determined to give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration and for entering your card in our challenge at Crafty ribbons! Hugs! xx
