Everything's coming up Roses.......

Welcome to the Queen Kat Designs Triple Tiara Tuesday (T3) challenge for this week.  The challenge is to create a project and include the use of a brayer in your work.  There's a prize up for grabs, so well worth submitting an entry.  Just head to the QKD blog and add a direct link to your project via Mr Linky in the sidebar on the blog.   Hopefully you arrived here after checking out the awesome projects both Penny and   Loretta created for you, if not, do hop over to their blogs right now you really won't want to miss them.

For my DT card I selected the Myka Jelina monthly kit for february as I just love the gorgeous big roses on the main image and also the additional rose stamps.  This kit is all sold out now, but the new March kit is still available in the QKD Store, these kits are such great value as each one contains a number of different stamps.  You can sign up to the club in the Store, it's a great way to make sure you don't miss out on any of the monthly kits.

Using my brayer and a 'Big and Juicy' ink pad, I first created a layer using regular white cardstock and then, using the same ink pad, brayered onto glossy white card.  As you can see from the photo, there is a huge difference in the effects of the same ink used on different cardstock.

I coloured the stamped images with Copics before cutting out.  The lacy circle behind the main image was cut using a die from a recently released set of nesties.  The strip at the bottom was cut using  Nellie's Choice punch and emboss border die.  The sentiment is from the kit and stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink.

I hope you've enjoyed checking out my project today, and that it has inspired you to enter the challenge yourself.   There are so many fabulous stamps and other crafting goodies in the QKD Store, do check out the current special offers over there, you don't want to miss a bargain !
