Wild Rose Sketch

I had just received my 'Wild Rose' set when my friends Joeleen, Kirsten and I met for the 2nd time for our card swap. We originally thought to meet every month but that was way too long to wait for our creative fix, so we decided every fortnight. The sketch was one found on the net but I can't remember where. I thought at first that the sketch was quite hard but after some tinkering I came up with the above to share. The colours had to be going grey, so saffron, mellow moss, and perfect plum. Not having any of the right colour cardstock except for the grey which Kirsten provided, made me concentrate on just the ink colours. The white organdy ribbon I dyed with perfect plum and it came up off white which I curled deliberately and held down with a brad. Here was when I discovered the craft stampin' spots which I embossed clear and just made the whole thing pop. After that I couldn't stop using them and bought the soft subtles intending to get the rest of the range later. The craft colours are not offered on the NZ catty which is a shame but never fear I will find a way. :)

Such sweet looking cards! Those are great soft colors to combine! Glad you were able to make them work without the right paper colors! :)
