Split Personality Rose


Quickie from me - I'm supposed to be helping DH prep for a dinner party tonight in honour of his birthday tomorrow!  Couldn't resist playing along with a few challenges:

Paper Smooches SPARKS (see the rosebud?):


Fusion (there's no linky tool yet, girls, we're having to link through comments):


City Crafter Roses:


I used the same technique that Dawn demonstrated in Stretch Your Stamps 2.  For me, that is the best example of stretching your stamps and I love the technique.  My rosebud has a split personality because it's actually the tulip stamp from the Bold Blooms set!  Just shows what a bit of squidging and scribbling can do.  The leaves are from Reflections and the stem is from Bold Blooms.  I used a 0.5 pen to scribble.


Ok, playtime over, back to the kitchen to help DH :)

  2. Shirley, I really think I'm missing out by not doing the class this time! This card is amazing! Are all the black lines your own scribbles? Amazing!! Thanks for joining us at Fusion (we're working on that Linky problem, thanks for linking up in the comments!)
