Soul of the Rose
I don't own many Oxford Impressions stamp but I did buy The Soul of the Rose set from my first visit to LB Crafts early last year, unfortunately LB Crafts has now closed its doors, which is a shame as I'd only just discovered it and used to enjoy visiting Olney. But I can console myself by using this set of stamps which has lots of gorgeous Pre Raphaelite images. I used my favourite stamp which is of a painting by J. W. Waterhouse and I gave her the full shabby treatment.
I stamped onto glossy paper with archival ink and used my zig photo markers to tint the image. The background paper is from Kaisercraft sweet nothings range. The rose is stamped onto an old book page and I distressed a mica tile.
I am entering this in the following challenges
Craft room Challenge ~ Vintage
Simon Says Stamp & show ~ Anything goes
The Stampman ~ Vintage
Pan pastel challenge ~ Girly/Mother's Day
The sun has finally made an appearance so I'm off out now, we have had fog all this week.
Have a great day & happy crafting xx
