As the Funky Fossil Designs "Abstract Beauty" stamp set was on my desk, I decided to create a totally different card using the roses.

I stamped the roses several times on to white card using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" a shade of grey ink.  I coloured the roses and the leaves using a selection of Distress Oxide Inks applied with a paint brush.  I used Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry for the flowers.  Twisted Citron and Shabby Shutters were used for the leaves.

Using a blender and a Distress Oxide Ink called "Peacock Feathers" I coloured a white piece of card to create the background.

In the middle of the background, I used the central section of the "Leafy Mandala" stencil with white ink to create a little subtle pattern.

I cut out the roses and leaves and then adhered them on to the background in a circle shape.

Using an off-cut of the coloured background I stamped the sentiment (Hobby Arts Ltd - Greetings For Friends CS158D) using a black Versafine Clair Ink called "Nocturne" and then added it over the cetral area of the ring of roses.
