Night Rose

A second post from me today, please scroll down to see my DT project for Crafting for all Seasons.

We seem to be missing most of the bad weather here at the moment, it's been very wet at night and first thing then it's cleared out to sunny days, hope it lasts!

I made this last night using a decoupage from Crafty Purple Frog called Night Rose. Unfortunately the current challenge at Crafty Purple Frog will be the last for the time being but as I had this image printed I didn't want her to go to waste. I love the vintage feel to the image.

Backing paper was from a candy win and I've coloured some of the petals with watercolour pencils to bring out the lilac in the decoupage image. I've used textured white card for the base layer and decoupage mat both of  which I've distressed with black soot DI. Fan punch is from Martha Stewart. Ribbon, lace, button and pearls are from my stash. Rosette die is from Memory Box - wish I'd used something smaller now but it's firmly stuck so will have to stay there!

Fab n Funky - lace and pearls
Inky Impressions - birthday creations
Moving along with the Times - vintage or shabby chic
