Honey Rosette


At still addINKtive this week we have a colour challenge.

Whenever there is a fifth week in the month we will have either a colour or sketch challenge instead of both.

I am choosing the colours for our challenges from now on and Bronwyn is designing the sketches.  Choosing them is really fun but it will be hard for me not to include pool party or baja breeze in every colour combo!

But look, my first combo and not a blue in sight!


I was asked by my club hostess if I could teach them how to make rosettes.  So I decided to use our colour challenge and this is what I came up with.




It’s my first time making a rosette too but I was happy with how it turned out.  I’m sure we’ll have fun making them together. 

There is very little stamping on this card but I used soft suede to stamp the bee from Nature Walk and the sentiment on the tiny tag.  I also stamped the flower image from tiny tags with pink pirouette onto the cotton ribbon.  It is subtle but pretty. Add a variety of punched flowers, a new embossing folder and it’s done.



Stamps : Tiny tags, Nature Walk

Card : river rock, vanilla, suede, pink pirouette, neutral and subtle dsp stack

Ink : suede, pink pirouette

Other : simply scored, tag punch, circle punches, boho blossoms punch, scallop trim border punch, itty bitty punch, linen thread, cotton ribbon, pearls, metallic brads, antique brad, big shot, honeycomb ef


Please take a look at what the rest of the still addINKtive team have created and make a card using our colours this week :)
