Ruffled Romance Collage

I am excited to participate in a new color challenge posted each Sunday night or Monday morning by Jeanne Streiff. Participants that use at least 1 Rubbernecker/Stamp Oasis image will be entered in a monthly drawing for a $25 Rubbernecker Gift Certificate! Click on Jeanne's name or on the Rubbernecker Challenge Blogger button on my sidebar for the details and to play along.

The colors this week are Brown, Turquoise and Green. I chose to use Romance Collage from the Stamp Oasis section. It was inked in TH Distress Vintage Photo and rock n rolled in Walnut stain before stamping on cream cardstock. The edges were sponged with TH Distress Broken China. I layered the turquoise striped ribbon on top of 5/8" wide chocolate Grosgrain and attached vintage brads. The ruffle was made by cutting 2 strips of DP 1 1/8" wide and roughly pleating it. I just ran adhesive down the left side of the card and stuck it down and wrapped the ends around to the back of the turquoise layer.


  1. I really love the way you inked the stamp!! Looks awesome!! I also LOVE these colors together!! The blue, the dp colors and the copper!!
