Roses On Paper xxx

I am so into masking at the mo xxx

I put these 3 Magnolia stamps together as an experiment - just mucking about - but I sort of liked it so I thought I'd use it for the Roses On Paper Challenge, which is love and friendship

Actually, there are 4 stamps here cos the sentiment is Magnolia as well - who can't count?????

Before I do the credits etc, tell me, which of these pics do you think looks best? I can't make up my mind......


This one is quite bright and possibly a little garish

This one is less garish but looks a bit washed out maybe.

Ohh I don't know - can't quite decide. I would really appreciate your opinions xxxxx

Anyhoos, the papers are a mixture of PP and Willow, the blue ribbon is a past Raspberry Ribbons kit, and the pretty pink bloom is Poppicrafts with a punched dot :)). Also, the Pro Markers / Glamour Dust duo had a bit of a say in it as well!!


My usual MSBP is having a bit of a diva strop today and I am hoping it is nothing serious cos I will be truly devastated if that goes on the blink!! So I used it's mate so it could have a day off. Fingers crossed it is feeling better in the morning.

Well it is a short post tonight - no inane drivvle you'll be pleased to hear, cos I'm having a very rare day where I'm not feeling 100% and I'm not feeling very chatty, so I'm offski.

Hopefully I will be back on form tomorrow and maybe have another card to share.


Have a fab night peeps.


Biggest hugs xxxxxx

another beautiful card Dawny! I like all three of them together as well! AS far as which pic looks better, just looking at them without clicking on them, I liked the first one best. But when I clicked on them, I think the second one looked better. So I guess I'm no help at all!! LOL! Feel better my friend!! hugs!!
