I just fell in love with Vintage Roses at CHA because of Pam Hooten's beautiful samples, and I was thrilled when Kate gifted me with the set! It reminds me of the pictures on the front of those old pattern packets my mom used to buy when I was a little girl. She shared her love of sewing and other crafts with me, and now they're such a huge part of my daily life...they bring me such joy and creative fulfillment. Love you, Mom!
I have made two cards pairing Vintage Roses with some beautiful patterned papers from Graphic 45's 8 x 8 pack, Le Romantique. The first is for today's OCL Sketch Challenge, a simple, unfussy card. I used circle and scalloped circle nestabilities to cut and emboss the image. All the edges were distress inked with Tim Holtz tea dye and vintage photo inks.
Copics to color both, including the little ivory roses on the second card. I really love them both....so soft and feminine!
