Roses in winter

Well I think my workshop went okay. Everybody seemed to love the Two-Step Stampin’® technique and the Wonderful Words set proved extremely popular.

This card was the first demo of the workshop – stamping off and Two-Step Stampin’® (click here for both techniques) with this beautiful Roses in Winter set.

Stamps: Roses in Winter (p47), Wonderful Words (p60)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Rose Red, Always Artichoke
Ink: Rose Red, Always Artichoke
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – Always Artichoke

And here is the card, pictured with the same design of card made with colours from the Soft Subtles and Earth Elements families. The Soft Subtles card uses Perfect Plum and Mellow Moss on Whisper White; the Earth Elements card uses Ruby Red and Old Olive on Very Vanilla. I can't decide which one I like best! 

If you want to see projects and techniques like this, please get in touch to book a workshop.
