... Are Red

  



Another week another challenge as they say !  Beautiful weather  today with a heatwave forecast for the weekend too.

This card was made from a 4.5 x 4.5 inch  square white card blank.  I have stamped the outline rose (Anitas) in archival black ink.






I then used my finger to apply Distress inks in fired brick, barn door, peeled paint & pine needles directly to fill the whitespace.  I wanted my print to show so I only did a small amount of finger stamping.  Fingerprints on cards are normally taboo but outside the lines is ok too !! 

I then got out my trusty Dymo and on black tape embossed the words which I hope are self explanatory, peeled off the backing and applied as shown to finish.

Fun to do and quite rewarding.  This card meets the Less is More challenge 180 where this week we have to 'Adapt a Fingerprint'.

  7. Is it just me - I have an inclination to finish it off with a slightly naughty rhyme for the inside to go with the finger prints! Looks fab Sid, a great way to colour that rose!
