Love Tabs Gift Set

My card base is thick Whisper White card stock with a layer of Chocolate Chip card stock.
I stamped my Sheet Music onto normal whisper white using the stamping off technique.
This gave me a faded and patchy look which lent itself more to the vintage feel I was after.

Using the stamp-a-ma-jig so I could stamp 2 colours on the same stamp I stamped my rose in Rich Razzleberry first cleaning off any excess colour from the leaf area before stamping. I then cleaned my stamp and inked it in Lemon Lime Twist again wiping of any excess only this time from the petals.
Once completely stamped I water coloured the whole flower, stem and leaves. Blending Rich Razzleberry, Lemon Lime Twist Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. I added clear Wink of Stella around the highlights of the rose plus 3 clear Perfect Accents..I made them clear by removing the white backing!
When all of the colour was dry I stamped the rose outline again in Rich Razzleberry to redefine the image and then fussy cut it out.

Pillow Box

Basic Directions.

I decorated my pillow box to match my card. I used the same elements from the card just on a smaller scale.

I have also added this gift set to the Global Design Project challenge this week #GDP099 with the theme of Wedding/Anniversary, this gift set fitted their theme to perfection!

The layers beneath the rose are wide black dotted white Washi Tape, Linen Thread, Black Mini Sequins and a doily cut in half. I placed the rose on top mounted on Mini Dimensionals.
I used the Tabs For Everything as a means to attach my sentiment and placed it beside the rose with multipurpose glue.
 For the inside of my card I simply stamped the smaller rose and quickly gave it a colour wash to match the front.
