Tea Roses


I wanted to try my hand again at the Shabby Tea Room challenge this week, based on a beautiful picture of a room absolutely drowning with roses.  I started by stamping this beautiful Rose Background in worn lipstick distress ink on ivory parchment paper, then cut it into a labels one shape and distressed the edges a bit.  The sentiment is one of my most used and very favorite ones, stamped in brown.  Then I used the same peachy-pink cardstock as the base of the card to make some rolled paper roses.  I had forgotten how fun and easy to make they are!  I used a sagey green for the leaves and the panel; I love it's softness. 

Also entering this into the PaperPlay Challenge: Pink.

Supplies: Hero Arts CG179 Rose Background, AR137 Script Messages, parchment, pink, green cardstocks, worn lipstick distress ink, Memories artprint brown ink, nestabilities labels one, K&Company paper lace
