A Fun Rose Background


I made this card over July and August and am finally getting a chance to post it!  I was inspired after seeing Dawn Woleslagle's "Cath Kidston inspired background" she made while participating in the 30-day coloring challenge.  Dawn masked her background then drew the flowers in the white spaces!  Lucky for me, Dawn created  "Freehand Florals" stamp set for those like me who can't draw :)!

 I started off with a piece of white cardstock.  I lightly taped scalloped die cut pieces (Nestabilities), then sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the entire piece.  After removing the scallops, I had what looked like Aqua Mist cardstock with white scallops all over it. I stamped the large rose and leaves from Freehand Florals in the white spaces.  The sentiments are from PTI.  SO much fun making this card!

Seriously lovely card - I loved that technique that Dawn shared, but I have no freehand drawing talent, so great to see it can be replicated with stamps. :D
