WMSC # 90 Tuesday Throwdown #91 - Amour

Grab Our ButtonWMS Sketches_MS font_separateI've been playing around with this idea since I saw the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #90 design by Mischief Maker Renee Lynch.   I found this one a little tricky - and even though I love layering I had a hard time covering up part of the images I stamped.  I put it to the back of my mind until I saw the theme for Tuesday Throwdown his week - "outside of the box." Have part of your image outside of the  frame.    I  put these two ideas together and this is what I came up with.

I stamped the two identical pieces with an accent from Paris Nouveau.  I stamped them back to back to make one image with an empty space in the center.  The roses in the center are from the Ribbon Reel - they are the off white 25 mm Hybrid Tea Roses.   To color them I used a mini mister (Ranger) and filled it with rubbing alcohol (so it would dry quickly).  I added half a dropper of Mustard Seed ink from a reinker and some Pearl Ex Aztec Gold powdered pigment.  The end result is a yellow rose with lots of gold accent.   To "anchor" all my elements I used some twine - and I couldn't resist a big fat bow to top it all off.


Thanks so much for having a look!    Enjoy this wonderful spring weather and have a great day!
Jeanne
