This week we are showcasing
Morgan Fitzsimon's Images,
Please visit the SHOP

My Project for
 this Challenge is:-
Flower Border 2 Digi Stamp
To begin with I used a Pre-cut Roses Filigree Square Card
(Hobby Craft)
which I shaded the Filigree Edging,
with Dark Purple Chalk around the outside,
Pastel Puprle Chalk on the rest,
and on the Rose cutouts I used Deep Pink Chalk
(Decorative Pastel Chalks - Dovecraft)
I then Matt and Layered it up with Pearlised Dark Purple Paper
and Pearlised Light Purple Card  
(both Ross Papers)

Next I printed off the Image
  on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens
Fushia Pink
Pear Green
Marsh Green
Olive Green
Burnt Umber

I then Backed it on to some Meduim Brown Victorian Wooden Flooring
(picture from
 to give it the effect of being in a Wooden Frame.

On the Words 'Give Thanks'
I added some Holographic Black Glitter
(Glitter Magic)

And on the Roses I added some Glossy Accents

to make them pop.

For the Paper Roses, I 1st started with 3 Cream Paper Roses,

Which I sprayed with a water mix of Pastel Purple Mica Powder,
and when that dried it looked to light so I then made
another water mix with Mid Purple Mica Powder
(Sample Pots)
When they had fully dried I went around the edge of each Petal
with Violet Shimmer Sparkles

I then atempted to make a Bow using a scrap of 
Verigated Purple Glitz Ribbon 
that I had in My Scrap Box
but unfortunately I didn't have enough to make it work properly
so I added the 3rd Flower on top so it looked like extra leaves.

Finally when I added the 2 Roses to the Side 

I thought they looked a bit plain
so I added a nice little Die Cut Flourish
(so sorry I cant remember who's it is)
made from Copper Card, which I found in the Scrap Box as well.
