I played with my SU Sweetbriar Rose stamp with my new Melon Mambo Blendabilities alcohol markers. I just did a little therapeutic coloring and still am amazed how wonderfully the ink melts into the paper. Since I put a little button on it, I thought I would share it with my friends at The Paper Players # 207 this week.



SU Sweetbriar Rose with Hardwood

This pretty single stamp fills up a card front and could be used so many ways. I chose to let it stand on its own off a bright white panel but thought the addition of the Hardwood stamped background on Crumb Cake cardstock would complement the image nicely. The left corner seemed a bit bare so I added a subtle yet elegant embellishment I thought the humble flower deserved. Rounding off two opposite corners is an easy way to dress the card up even more.

Hope you enjoyed it today:)
