Good morning. It's Saturday again so that means it's time for another new challenge at

FREE & EASY FEBRUARY
theme but we do have some new inspiration for :o)
Our sponsor this week is
and Ruth is offering 1 lucky winner
4 images of their choice
Here's what I decided to make this week:
I recently treated myself to some Ink Dusters and have been itching to get inky with them - I usually use the blending tool and I have to say I quite like the effect from the dusters - it somehow seems a little softer and blends a little easier :o)
I started with embossing a 5"x5" square piece of linen effect textured card using Creative Expressions 'Delicate' Mask.
Then I used Martha Stewart 'Cherish' PATP and inked with Dusty Concorde Distress Ink
This was mat and layered onto a larger piece of cardstock that I rounded the corners of and attached to a co-ordinating basecard.
I die cut a frame using Spellbinders Labels 1 and Plain Squares and used foam pads to give it some dimension. The sentiment - part of a set from TPC Studio 'Floral Collage' was stamped onto a smaller Labels 1 and heat embossed with clear EP and then inked with Dusty Concorde with a few adhesive pearls added.
To finish I added a few velvet rolled roses to the corner - which on the photos they look a strange blue colour and look like they don't match - but IRL they are Lilac and tone in perfectly - how strange!!!!!
I really enjoyed putting this card together - I hope you like it too :o)
Please pop over to the main challenge blog and take a look at the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies - you won't be disappointed :o)
