Rosebuds Tag


Hi everyone.  Today is the start of a new challenge at ATCAS (#51), hosted by my very talented teammate, Vicki (All I Do is Stamp).  She chose this fun word ...






Prize:  5 digital images


Great code word Vicki!!  Had a lot of fun making my card using my new stamps "Rosebuds" from Shirley-bee's new line of stamps "The Bees Knees".

Watercoloured the background first, cut it into a tag shape, stamped and watercoloured the rosebuds and then finished it off with a simple banner sentiment and some ribbon.  Once I mounted it on my white card base, I thought it needed some texture, so I removed the tag and added hearts with embossing paste.  Just adds a little somethin' somethin' in the background.

We have a new Guest Designer at ATCAS for the month of November ... welcome to Linda L (Creepin' Along)!  We're so happy to have her joining our team.  I hope you'll take some time to check out her blog.

I Love how you used your watercolored background technique for your pretty rosebud image. Adding the EB paste hearts in the background added so much beautiful, but simple texture. TFS Loll.

The watercolour background on your tag is perfect with those soft, almost gently drifting roses, Loll ... and so lovely with the stencilled background! Anita :)
