Craft Barn "Alpha/Dictionary" Challenge

The next letter for the Craft Barn challenge is "R". I knew right away that I wanted to use the word rose, but I couldn't get my head around what to do. So it took me until today to get the page finished and I just made it in time . Phew ... :)

 For the background I masked up several sections and used a rose stamp from craft stampers to stamp it in different VersaFine colours in each section. After that I added some Distress inks all over the background.
I then found a lovely image of a vintage lady with roses in her hand, which I layered on paper and glued it to the background. 
I then added a lace at the bottom of the image and fixed it with some flower brads. Finally I added the word definition. 
Thanks for looking :)


  1. I assure you, it was definitely worth the wait! She is gorgeous right down to her beautiful lace and colorful brads. Very impressive rose.

  2. Oh, she's a sly one...knowing he will not be able to keep from staring at her roses! LoL. This is a beautifully crafted page! Great details.

  3. The repeat stamping of the rose works very well as a background and of course totally appropriate for your choice of word! The vintage photo is great too.

  4. This is just beautiful!! Thank you for entering The Craft Barn's Challenge.
