Love Blooms with Alcohol.........

Ha, that heading ought to get some of my friends a lookin'!
I used Close To My Heart's new Alcohol Markers, on this beautiful rose, from the set
Love Blooms.

I started with yummy Slate cardstock, then stamped this shaded rose image in Ruby ink, all over. I stamped some Whisper cardstock with the script image of Universal Backgrounds, in Slate ink. I added some Ruby cardstock with our new Glamour Glitter Alphabet for the sentiment. I also used new Silver Shimmer Trim and Grey Wool Baker's Twine.

The rose image was stamped with Memento Black ink, then I cut it out. I used only our Ruby Alcohol marker and its complimentary shade marker to colour the rose. I added a wee bit of Stardust Glitz for more pizzazz.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
