Purple Rose

Sunday Sketch & Stamp (1) - Sketch
Stamp Something - Something with showers or flowers
Cute Daisy May (9) - Gems
It's a long time since I have used this gorgeous rose stamp so I thought it could do with an airing. I have stamped the image using a Versacolor inkpad called Wild Berries which has five shades of the same colour to it. I punched the flowers and leaves and added gems to the centres. The little gems are in fact hair decorations that my good friend Michael found and sent me. Thank you very much Michael. Down the side, and the bow, is white satin ribbon which I recoloured using peel-off pens.
