Wild Rose in Red

I love red! It's not always an easy color to work with though. I used Stampin Up's Wild Rose set (retired) and some of the gorgeous new In Color colors! The flowers are Riding Hood red accented with Brilliance's Pearlescent poppy. The leaves are Kiwi kiss. I used a rub on for the sentiment. I was not using this set for the LONGEST time because I had such problems getting the second stamp just right over the first. I started using EZ Mount and ripped my two step stamps off their wood blocks and now find two step stamping a breeze and am having fun using some older sets that I struggled with before! EZ Mount is cheap ($4.50 per 81/2x 11 sheet). If you aren't familiar with it, it is a piece of foamy rubberish stuff. One side is sticky and the other side is clingy. You can mount your stamps on it and use clear acrylic blocks to do your stamping. I know some people are just crazy for the wood, but this was a perfect solution to my problem! I've also used the stampamagig, but this mounting process is just easier for me. Hope you like my card!
