Good Saturday morning.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge.  The inspiration for the challenge was to use color combinations pinned by Michael’s Stores.  I was inspired by a rustic wood and vintage pink rose.  Sadly my card didn’t end up looking like what I had in mind when I started but it was the best I could do.  This past Tuesday my ring finger tangled with my new Spiral Vegetable Slicer and the slicer won.  Ouch!  I have a fairly big boo boo and bandage that got in the way of my creative process.  LOL!

I started by stamping the Impression Obsession Tree Bark Background twice on white cardstock using pumice stone ink.  I then ran the ink pad directly over the pieces of cardstock to add more color.  I also ran the edge of the pad straight down the paper a few times to create a few lines. I didn’t really like the outcome so I used a wet baby wipe to wipe the paper to smoosh the color around.  I made the second piece darker with ink to create contrast for my frame.  I cut the frames and attached together with ATG adhesive.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it toe the card base.

I cut two My Favorite Things Large Rolled Rose pieces.  The first was rolled  and assembled to form the main center part of the flower.  A portion of the second rose was loosely rolled and attached together to form the larger petals for my flower.  I used pliers to roll back all of the petals of the rose to create a more natural looking flower.  The stem was cut using Susan’s  Garden Notes Rose 2

The stem and rose was attached to the card base with glossy accents to finish.
