Tale of a Rose- Crafts and Me Rubbah Challenge

     Hi- Happy Wednesday.. this is the first of two posts I have for you today.  Since it is Wednesday, it is time for another great challenge at Crafts and Me Stamps... Teresa thought up a lovely challenge for the Rockin Rubbah team… “Peaches and Cream”.
     For my card, I colored up a new stamp by Janna Prosvirina called “Tale of a Rose”.  She is in stock along with other brand new beautiful stamps by her.  Check them out HERE.

     She is colored with Copic and Touch Twin markers.  I played with the new Stampendous “Frantage”– that is the white and glitter embossing enamel you see around the image and on the Tim Holtz metal label.  Tracy Payne has done a wonderful youtube tutorial HERE  on how to use this fun product. There are even several Pinterest boards featuring projects using it- just search “Frantage” to check them out!  Frantage comes in several colors and they are on the way to me as I write this. Can’t wait to play with the other colors.  In addition to the Frantage, I also added a “pinch” of Frosted Crystal Antiquities Embossing Powder by Ranger.
     The design paper is from Pion. The edges of the cardstock and paper were distressed with Brushed Courduroy and Vintage Photo inks.  Roses, crinkled seam binding, lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts (closed this week for onsite maintenance) and Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment from LOTV and pearls from my stash. In retrospect, I should have used smaller pearls, but these were such a perfect “peach” color that I could not resist using them. The wooden heart is from Prima. I painted it with Picket Fence and White pearl paint dabbers and added glitter all over this card!
     Please stop by the Crafts and Me challenge blog to see what the design team has created to inspire you.  We would love to see your “Peaches and Cream” creations! Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments.
     I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

    WOW! This card is absolutely gorgeous! The peachy color together with creme is a beautiful combination, and I'm so impressed by all the lovely details you've added to this card. This style is something I'm not good at, I feel my cards end up looking messy rather than embellished or beautiful, but this card is candy for the eyes!
