JustRite Friday Challenge 053

For my entry into the JustRite Friday Challenge 053 (to make a handmade dimensional flower) I made a red carnation using grunge paper and the Spellbinders Pinking Circles dies.  Then, what to do with it???  I am not really much of a shabby girl, but the supplies all leaped onto the paper and produced this:

The Vintage Oval Labels stamp was inked with Versamark and dusted with off-white embossing powder to give a white-on-white pattern that I just love.  The tiny dots around the frames were added with a Sakura Souffle gel pen in a peach color.

Here's all the supplies used:
Stamps:  JustRite Vintage Oval Labels, JustRite Fancy Frames
Dies:  Spellbinders Labels 13, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large
Paper:  DCWV stack; SU Very Vanilla, SU Ruby Red
Ink:  SU Ruby Red; Versamark; Sakura Souffle gel pen; Fiesta red alcohol ink to dye the flower.
Embellishments:  tatted lace from my flea market stash; Prima off-white roses; red ribbon.

I think Mom will like this--she is a big fan of the shabby chic look!

Thanks for looking,
