Altenew Vintage Roses stamp

Hello everyone!! Today I am posting after a long time. I hardly find time any for crafting with my little one around. But trust me, its a lovely feeling and I am loving being a full time mommy.
Inspite of such busy schedules I managed to lay my hands on some of the new stamps and was very eager to try them out. One such stamp set is the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp which is very sought after by stampers nowadays. It was a tough task to play with this stamp set as it is a bit tricky and requires a lot of practice. After some successful and not so successful trials I managed to get some pretty roses. I decided to fussy cut and use the good ones to make a card. At the same time I tried out another stamp set which is WPlus9 Pretty Little Peonies..... so my card has a mix of elements from both these pretty sets. The sentiment I heat embossed using Ranger Gold embossing powder. I have also use a golden paper for matting to give a golden outline to the main card piece.

Below is a snapshot of the trials I did. I used watercolor paper, glossy paper and normal paper. And the inks I tried were Archival inks and Memento inks. In case you have any queries, I would be happy to help you out.
One of my crafter friends Neha Bhatt has also done her review on this stamp set. If you like to read her post, please visit her blog here.

Thanks for dropping by. Do let me know your views on the card.
