Rock the Red pt 1

What an amazing January. 

I have to admit I am behind in my updates and posts but I am really excited to be moving forward in 2017 and hopefully finding a bit of routine and rhythm. February is going to be packed with lots of love for all that Creativation offered last month and for the wonderful wrap up of 2016 in December, so make sure you follow and don't miss anything.

BUT, in the spirit of moving forward we are going to be highlight all things Red. So bring your A Game and show us how RED inspires you this month.


The idea for this tag popped up in my head when I found this beautiful background that was actually a scrap from a monoprinting technique I had used on another project some weeks ago. I just loved the patterns the paints had created on my paper - and red it was. So I knew I had to use this for a big tag alongside the fab Chinese New Year Emerald Creek embossing powder! 

When I saw Kim's Dare this month to 'Rock the Red', my mind immediately turned to Valentine's Day! When I opened my package of new Emerald Creek goodies and saw this beautiful rose stamp, I knew it had to be front and center of my design! The Kimilese script stamp makes the perfect watery background, and the heart charm and brads the perfect embellishment for my Valentine card! I got double the use from my script stamp by using it on the heart background, too!
