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 :)
