"Roses for My Lady"

Wednesday, February 16, 2011


It's been a busy week. The wife and I made a trip to our favorite stamp store in Columbia, SC "The Stamping Place". She had some pretty good sales going on, trying to make room for all the new products coming in from CHA. We bought some new "Just-Rite stamp sets that I plan to color shortly.

Today's card, I call "Roses for My Lady". No reason for making it, just wanted to color an image and make a card. The image is from the Tilda series from Magnolia. Here is the card;

"Roses for My Lady"

As I was embellishing the card I realised that I need some pink flowers to use on the card. After much searching, the only thing I had some white one. Hmmm!! Out came the Copic Airbrush and walla, I now had some pink flowers. The Copic Airbrush and markers work great on all kinds of embellishments. Give it a try.


The border around the primary mat was punched with a Martha Stewart Corner Border Punch called "Laurel Leaf". I also used only the corner punch on the secondary mat corners. The design is light and airy.



The paper for the secondary mat behind Tilda I bought at Hobby Lobby. The paper pack is sold by "The Paper Studio". Very pretty papers, and most of them are already embossed.

Hope you enjoy today's card. Your comments are always appreciated and welcome.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Love it Bob! The air brush comes in handy that's why I buy everything in white these days. The punch just finishes off perfectly. Cheers Lora Sinkler-Lake www.crazystamper.typepad.com

    Bob, I always anticipate what you'll be creating next. Love the card and I'm sure "Roses for My Lady" is really "Roses for Rose". You have a wonderful knack for coloring and pulling things together. I hoping some of your creativity will rub off on me. I hope to see you and Rose at the Stamp Scrap Art Tour this weekend. Thanks for sharing your work.

    Great card Bob. Love it. Love your Tilda and the colors you used. I also like how you were able to get your flowers colored to match so well with your card using your copics.
