Crikey nearly a week gone by again - so sorry!!

Posted by tracy watkiss at 11:47

I know I have not posted any pretties for a while, but quite frankly I lost the plot. My MOJO left me high and dry.

But then Yesterday I stood at the shop counter and coloured - Now I know cute is all the rage, but those of you that know me really well, will be well aware I am a sucker for roses!!
 Always have, always will. Be it the actual flowers in the garden, papers, fabric, embellishments, ribbons, the chocolates (but thats another story) But mostly stamps, I have lost count of the amounts of rose stamps I have purchased over the years for myself and the shop, and this week was no
exception.

This week this little beauty came into the shop from Kanban its called Vintage rose.


At £4.99 its a snip.

So I set to work with my polychromas pencils and lost myself in my own little bubble.

Did a little bit of distressing and left it on the counter, whilst I  went for a stroll around blogland, where I chanced upon this months i{heart}2stamp challenge who have a sketch challenge this time around and a prize on offer. Please go check them out, I have said many times that we all need a little inspiration every now and then (or as I call it my fix).

Any who back to my card for the challenge.  I took the Stamped image, all coloured in an set to work with the new Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Papers. And followed the sketch, I am quite happy with this one even if I do say so myself. LOL!!


Everything on this card is available in Just Tracys Crafts (Bricks and Mortar shop) as of today!

Happy crafting
