Rose and weathered wood

Well, I'm back from Finland, I can't believe we are at the end of the Easter holidays. I can't face the thought of going back to work tomorrow, the silver lining is that it's just a four day week to ease us back into it all. I have spent the day sorting some of my inks into my new crafting desk drawers, which was great fun. I had a bit of trouble flexing my crafty muscles, but I managed to get a card done in the end. 

I started by masking off the area I wanted to stencil, and stencilled through the STAMPlorations Weathered Wood stencil using Stampin' Up Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar inks. Then I stamped the rose from the Blossom Overture stamp set using Versafine and coloured using Gansai Tambi watercolours. After fussycutting the rose, I stamped a sentiment from the set onto vellum. Last, I die cut a banner using a Lawn Fawn die from Let's Polka in the Dark red polka dot paper.

My card was inspired by the colours over at ColourQ and the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I coloured the flower with red and pink, the pink doesn't show very well on the photo unfortunately. I was also inspired by the lovely floral image on the wooden table from Inspired by All the Little Things. Furthermore, I was also inspired by the Stencil theme over at both AAA Cards and CAS on Sunday
