I do like a sketch to use as a starting point and this is what I came up with:
I've been hugging this paper pad for some time now and today I decided it was time! So I started by preparing all the layers from the sketch and then stamped the gorgeous Uniko rose onto the square.
The hello is a very old Clearly Besotted die and I cut it three times to add dimension.
Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals Rose
Ink: SU, smoky slate
Ppaer, Mintay Papers, Dear diary
Dies: Lawn Fawn, stitched squares; CB, Hello
Huge thanks for dropping by today, I really appreciate you taking the time.
Stay safe and keep crafting!
