Roses for Love

     I have the honor of being a GDT at Through the Craft Room Door this week, where the challenges are always "Anything Goes."  I got to use a digital image drawn by Sandi Huggett, one of my favorite artists.  I first got to know Sandi and her work over at The Outlawz.  Here's one of her incredible flower images.


     I colored the roses with my ProMarkers, then die cut it with one of those wonderful framing dies by Spellbinders.  I cut another frame with the die one size larger, using some dusty pink CS, and embossing it.  The dp is from Crafts, Etc., the "Sweet Pea" stack.  The lovely, sheer, polka-dot ribbon came from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is one of my favorites.  I wish I had more of it in my stash.  The frames are so decorative and detailed that I decided to limit embellishment to just the ribbon.  That way, the focus is on the gorgeous roses!

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create -- A/G
A & T Emerald Faeries -- Flowers + ribbon or lace
Addicted to Stamps -- Song inspiration (Paper Roses)
Bearly Mine -- Flowers
Challenges 4 Everybody -- A/G
Dream Valley -- A/G
Fairies -- Mothers
Glitter & Sparkle -- Female
One Stitch at a Time -- Use a digi
Outlawz Greetings -- Flowers
Outlawz PAM -- For a special lady
Outlawz Twisted Thurs. -- die cuts
Robyn's Fetish -- Flowers in the image

     I hope we're going to see you playing along in the challenge this week.  With an "Anything Goes" theme, how can you go wrong?  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
