TT105 Robyn's Rose

tt105 rose detail

Welcome to another Tuesday and another fresh challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. This week we have an 'Anything Goes' theme, but as tomorrow heralds the 4th July Celebrations is the USA I felt it would be nice to use the colours Red, White and Blue.  


I used a lovely 'Rose' image from our sponsor this week 'Robyn's Fetish - Digital Stamps and more'

 I decided to paper piece the bloom of the 'Rose image' by printing several times on some pretty muted blue DP, fussy cutting and then arranging the petals in a kind of decoupaged style using foam dimensionals.  I also used my glue pen to go in and add a little sparkle on the edge of the petals.  The stem and leaves are simply coloured using Copics. For the layout of this card I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 248 and cut panels of Christy Tomlinson's She Art Paper by Pink Paislee and added some Prima Lace along the second panel and some gorgeous red striped twill ribbon.  The little tiny label says 'love you' and is from my super lovely friend Pauline, who sent me some heavenly crafty goodies for my birthday last week.

I do hope you'll have time to play along with our challenge this week.  Don't forget you will find a whole ton of inspiration from the other TTDT ladies by visting the Tuesday Throwdown Blog. 

Here's a look at that pretty Mojo Monday sketch I followed too:
