Nouveau Scribble Roses


     When I saw these stamps I thought Rennie Mackintosh, I love Art Nouveau so that meant a simple but stylish card. I hope to have achieved that with this one.
     It is a very quick and easy card to make, sometimes we need ones like that when we're caught out by a forgotten occasion.

     I have used a square of white card and stamped John Lockwood's Scribble Rose flowers in the corners, these stamps are available from Creative Expressions via your local craft shop.
     Once the flowers were stamped and embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Black I coloured them in with alcohol markers.
     Using a ruler I measured equally spaced lines to run from the flower to meet in the other corner.
     The image panel is then mounted on a white card blank that has had the edges coloured with the same marker as the flowers so it matches.
     This would also be a very good card for posting as it's only two layers and has no embellishments on it either.

Materials used
John Lockwood Scribble Rose stamp set
Cosmic Shimmer Black embossing powder
