Here's my next ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha Dictionary Challenge where this fortnight the letter is R.
Quick read of my dictionary and I decided to choose Rosebud with a rosy colour scheme. The background is Regal Claret Ink in a Bottle with stamping in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink - the Radiating Lines and Round Ring stamps from Tim Holtz's Bitty Grunge set. The Rosebud itself is from Oak House Studio, embossed in silver and coloured with Tombow markers. I've added green Ribbon, the dictionary definition and the alcohol inked letter R.
It's amazing how many other words you can actually include with your main word. I'm also surprised how many metals are silvery white - here we have Rhenium, Rhodium and Ruthenium - so that's why I did silver embossing again.
It's a fun challenge and very educational too - hope you like my creation and thanks for looking!
