Dotted Rose Valentine

Well, Valentine's Day is right around the corner - can you believe it?! I'm going to take the batteries out of my clocks!

Chocolate Baroque has released a new stamp set called Rose and Thistle, and it is gorgeous! Click on the name to go see it on the Chocolate Baroque site! So beautiful!

I decided to color the heart using the same technique as it was drawn, by using dots unstead of sweeps of color from a marker, or strokes of a colored pencil. I used fine tipped markers and dotted the whole heart, using different shades to blend the colors. I used a stencil for the fan-looking embossing, and just added a few die cut shapes, some ribbon, and a little red and silver bling to complete this valentine for my Valentine! For the inside, I stamped the same rose heart onto burgundy cardstock, and colored it in using the same colors from the front. It looks totally different from the front heart which was done on white cardstock.  I aged the paper with some ink and roughed up the edges a little to try to make it look old.

Happy stamping, all you Sweethearts out there! :)


  1. I particularly like the way your Pointilism coloured those leaves - & the whole is just gorgeously decadent. Love the little sprig of red foliage with the ribbon & the buckle.

  2. A sumptuous card Clare. It looks so expensive, I think it's down to the rich looking red.
