Forever Rose..............

Hello everyone Vicky here today. How are you all? Hope you've all had a good weekend. Well the winds have finally died down now & mr sunshine has popped out to say hello............hello (waving) lol.
Today I am here to show you a card, I'm running late so I'm sorry about that :0(
Now I know I'm on the Rockin' Rubbah team but I decided to try work through my growing pile of coloured images in my box & this image is the very first digi I brought from Crafts & Me Store, I was sooooo excited that Teresa was releasing digi' hubby was at fishing & I phoned him squealing down the phone in excitement...........poor bugga its no wonder his hearing is going a little lol.
Anyway now dont laugh but this started as a CAS card, however I saw all my lovely flowers drooping their heads cus they were sad so I just had to use a couple.........just a few!!!!
Here is 'Forever Rose' by no other than Hannah this artist!!!

I've kept to the colours white plus one. Now I'm not sure why I chose green to do her hair I had coloured her eyes as I do skin tones first & I thought I will give her green eyes like mine, altho mine are not as green. Not been bothered to change pens I decide to see what it looked like, if I didnt like it well its nothing to throw away a bit of card & redo it............well I ended up liking it lol.

Both layers of card are dry embossed & then the image which has been stamped onto smooth white card with memento, was heat embossed with UTEE. All the layers have been matted with shimmer card, light sage & a dark sage & the leaves were cut out using a Marianne die.

I sprayed the rose with 'Pearl' Tattered Angels glimmer mist.......which is lush but so hard to photo, maybe if you click on it so it enlarges you may see the beautiful sparkle it gives off.

I will also show you my card for the challenge which this week is 'Gems & Pearls' & you have until Tuesday night to enter to be in with a chance of winning the fabby prize.
I used one of the latest new releases Teresa has recently stocked.

This is the beautiful 'Pale Rose' by Jasmine Becket-Griffith she is out of stock at the mo but fear not she will be in very soon you can actually go to the store & click to be e-mailed when she is back in stock.
Also dont forget Teresa stocks many other stamps too including the fabby Whiff Of Joy ones.
Below is 'Melinda Blowing Kisses'

Isn't she pretty........
Well thats it from me sorry for the long post but if you got to the end you deserve a cup of tea & a choccy biscuit....mmmm or cake lol.
Hope you will have time to join in with our challenge here & why not pop along to the Store here to treat yourself to some new crafty stash.........there is so much to choose from.
Thanks for popping by it means a lot to all uss girls here at Crafts & Me.
Tatty bye & hugs to all xoxoxoxo

  4. Oh wow, such beautiful cards, so lovely colors ! Superb !

  5. Wow Vicky, you made such amazing creations. Love all of them. The white embossing on the first card looks so elegant, and the green as an additional colour is a perfect combination. I also love the glossy effect you gave with the Utee.
    Hugs, Karina

  6. Hi darling these are just stunning as always, this is all time fav stamp from the Whiff of Joy.
    luv gina xx

  7. Vicky, all 3 of these are absolutely gorgeous hun. I really love her green hair. I think it looks fab and not your usual hair color, so it makes it even more dramatic. I love athat you stamped and colored the new "Pale Rose" image on kraft paper and colored pencils( while it looks like pencils) is it? And last but not least your
    Whiff of Joy card is so soft and girlie. I love the layout you created and those paper flowers you created look awesome. These are all just stunning Huh. You are a fab artist.


Thankyou for taking the time to leave a message it is lovely to hear from everyone.
Luv Teresa xx
