It's a gorgeous new set that celebrates the majestic rose. Artistically drawn by our new artist Sam Pickard, this old tea rose just begs to be colored with style. This elegant floral features three accent images, including a stately looking butterfly and five beautifully scripted sentiments - all on a 4 by 6" set. This set will also have a Silhouette Cut file available as well for wonderful creative options. You can find out more about our new Illustrator Sam Pickard HERE. You'll want to see all beautiful inspiration that the Design Team has for you with this set, and you'll want to be sure to comment because...
Mystery Blogger Graphic
One of our Design Team Members is the Mystery Blogger of the day! That means commenting on her blog puts you in the running to win you today's Old Tea Rose Stamp Set! You'll have to comment to find out who it is!
I stamped the images and sentiment on water color paper with Versa Fine Onyx Black.  I water colored the images using re-inkers from Ranger and a paint brush.

After I finished painting the images, I watered down Walnut Stain Distress Ink reinker and dipped a stiff brush into it and splattered it onto my paper.  I got a really nice fine spatter.   The patterned paper is from the MME Mabel pad and the beautiful hand dyed seam binding is from my friend Sherry Eckblad.
Want to see all the beautiful things you can create with this gorgeous flower? We love it so much we've invited some extra friends to the party. Head on over and see…..
