Roses Are Red

Roses are forever, no wait a minute that's diamonds isn't it? 

Well I have a rose for you today that is going to last a bit longer than most, it is from the Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Bold stamp set available at Creative Expressions.

I've used the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Stains to stamp and colour the leaves, then I added a little bit of Gold Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders to the flourishes.

The stamped images were all cut out using the co-ordinating Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose die set which is also available from Creative Expressions.

Hope your day is full of roses and diamonds.

Catch you later
