Plums and Roses


Tonight I really wanted to use the Wild Rose stamp set. It's been a while since I last used it and I missed working with these beautiful flowers.

The layout is pretty simple. A perfect plum base with centered mats of going gray and pale plum. The roses are stamped with pale and perfect plum classic inks on whisper white card stock using the masking technique. The leaves are stamped with River Rock and Mellow Moss. The sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the pale plum panel in perfect plum ink and a basic gray taffeta ribbon is used as an accent.

Other than the masking and the use of the stamp-a-ma-jig to achieve good alignment of the two-step stamping process, there's nothing fancy about this card. But then as you might have noticed, recently I've developed a whole new appreciation for simplicity. Hope you like it too.

Sometimes simplicity is beautiful and your card is just beautiful! I love the grey with the plum. They really compliment each other.
