Everything's Coming Up Roses


I know the image of the woman sniffing the rose comes from a famous painting but I don't know who by, I just know this is a very old stamp from Oxford Impressions. I used four stamps on my project: the woman, the rose frame (Stampin Up) , the sentiment and a rose stamp that I used on the die-cut butterfly (both unknown) . I used red ink and two shades of brown throughout.  I dry embossed the roses on the background,sanded them and added brown ink. The semi-circle of text was found on my craft-room floor! I guess it must have fallen out of something from a previous project.

This looks stunning all in red! It's a color I've never thought of using for a vintage design, at least not as a main color. Fab!
