Despite it seeming over the last couple of days that our summer is over I am still hopeful for sunny days to return soon!
In the meantime this weather does not make me feel guilty about grabbing some crafting time in between carrying out my responsibilities for both Club and County and traveling up and down the M6 to the National Championships.
The stamp comes from one of my favourite sets - Stempelglede Vintage Garden.
I coloured the image with distress markers (need more practice), then sponged around it with the aptly named 'Tattered Rose' DI!
I used lots of layers - the back layer is plain very pale pink card. Over it is a delicately patterned piece which I stamped with flourishes and white embossed - both these distressed and stitched.
The torn strip on the left is a darker shade again stamped and embossed and the piece on the right was a scrap of linen texctured card which I ran through the 'crimper', applied liberal does of white embossing powder too before assembling it all together.
I found a scrap of flimsy fabric which I popped behind the image and then stitched the whole lot together.
The script pieces were scraps torn from the wrapping of the ribbon which were obviously stamped - and I love the script - so if anyone can tell me what stamp it is.....!
The silver rose heart button was from my stash and I just stuck a couple of small pale pink pearls in the top left corner.
