retro freestyle (SCS, Retro Sketches)

Quickie.  Had the kraft paper out.  Opted to use a sketch I loved over at Retro Sketches #45 on a mini scale for the SCS Love Fest 2013I Challenge from Taylored Expressions to make a set of 3" cards.  Also hooking up at Retro Sketches #52, where in honor of their 1st bday you can use any previous sketch you'd like.  Must say I really love their sketches.

Again, I'm thinkin' these could adorn a bottle of wine given as a gift, like these.  A lined BG stamped horizontally and vertically with white pigment (definitely need a new white ink pad).  Two strips of washi, a heat embossed sentiment and a rolled flower (made from old clothes) topped things off.  In case you've not yet rolled your own flowers, here's a tute.  Good to go.

Have a great week.

Supplies for tags:
Paper: kraft ?
Stamps: BG Prima, sentiment Klartext
Ink : Adirondack white pigment, Versamark
Other: embossing powder, washi, rolled flowers, cotton twine

Huh, your rolled flowers are fab, of course, but I am really impressed by the way you made your own graph paper by rotating the lined stamp! Of course, it makes perfect sense now, but never would have thought of that. I've got lots of lined stamps, only one grid. Now it looks like I have more : ) Thank you for that, Maria!
