New Hero Stamp: Rose Background

This new beautiful rose background stamp is part of the new Hero Arts Artists Proof release. I couldn't wait for it to arrive and it does not disappoint! This first version is just inked in a soft pink background ink on ivory parchment paper, then sponged along the edges in the same ink.

Supplies: CG179 Rose Background, LL206 Take Good Care Greetings, Nestabilities Labels One, ivory, pink and Bazzill Celtic Green dotted cardstocks, twine, fabric flower and leaves

And this one was stamped twice, once on a soft pink parchment in a brown ink, and again on a soft pink cardstock, cutting that apart and paper-piecing it to the first. I colored the leaves with colored pencils.
Supplies: CG179 Rose Background, CL380 Truly Appreciated, Memories ArtPrint Brown ink, pale pink parchment and pink cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, unknown ribbon, pink pearls
