There was a mini-revival a couple of years ago, but
unfortunately it didn’t mount to much.
Today’s card is my take on an
inches card except I haven’t adhered my image to small cardboard tiles.
Then I used Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz Marker Pens, and coloured
I also stamped the image onto a large Post It Note, and then
cut it out so I could use it as a mask.
I covered my painted rose, and
then I stamped the patterned imake from the same set in the bottom
right hand corner using Sahara Sand Ink.
In the top left-hand corner, I
stamped the splatter stamp from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set.
Then I layered them onto twelve 1 1/4″ Pink

I stamped the smaller rose from the
Graceful Garden Stamp Set in the bottom right hand side.
I coloured it
