New stamps at Rogue Redhead Designs

I have been playing with a new stamp set from Rogue Redhead Designs in my new assignment as a Rogue At Large. Sharon has released 2 sets: Floriculture - a set of vintage flower images and Bits and Pieces - a sentiment set. I had a lot of fun just playing with 1 stamp and used it in 2 different ways to make these simple notecards.

In this first card, I stamped the flower using distress inks in victorian velvet and shabby shutters. That panel is layered onto gold textured paper and a tissue taped background colored with the same victorian velvet distress ink.

For the second card, I used the same flower stamp but combined it with one of the inchie squares from the Bits and Pieces set used as a shadow stamp. I first inked the square with turquoise pigment ink and then "kissed" it with the flower stamp. After cutting out the inchies and edging them with gold Krylon pen, I added them to another tissue taped background.

You can check out the RRD Etsy shop to purchase the stamps and don't forget about the RRD blog for more inspiration using these and other stamp sets from Rogue Redhead Designs.
