Ruby Red Valentine.....

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone: With Valentine's Day just around the corner, my teammates and I at the RETRO RUBBER challenge want to inspire you to create some sweet Valentines for your family and friends so, here is my card and I hope you come and play along with us in our gallery.

I bought this rose stamp set on Ebay back in 2016, I'm so glad I wrote the date on the back of the set, I'm not very good at remembering when I buy my stuff, this is a good idea to kind of keep track of when and how many sets you buy. 
I stamped this rose onto a die cut panel of watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The die cut "Love" sentiment is from a Penny Black die set called Love and Joy, the 4 sentiments cut really beautifully.


This is a picture of the finished inside of my card, the sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set and the single rose from the above stamp set.

So I hope you come and play with us at the RETRO RUBBER "Love, Love, Love" challenge, for more inspiration, top by the blog and check out my teammates gorgeous creations.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.

I have so many old stamps that are too pretty to give up. This one looks like a treat to color. You have a good eye! Love how you matted the pretty frame to make it stand out. It's perfect for your rose and sentiment. A bit of ribbon, too. Lovely, Maria!
