As we are still enjoying playing with our Hats and Roses stamps and the many various ways they can be used, we thought we might share a few more samples with you.

There was a time when of all the colours of the rainbow I hated “peach” - but now it appears rather contrarily that I am in love with it, it’s a fine line you know!

Using some black card stock and some “peachy” papers I cut out my background layers.
Then using Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles cut out two further layers.

 I drew around one of the dies and cut it out from black card to give a shadow effect.

Then, moving on to the “pretties”,  - I cut out from the Spellbinders Sue Wilson Lattice Motifs and Accents  - the oval and four corners.

I stamped the Tipped Hat twice with Momento Black Ink on two shades of peach card stock - one for the main hat and the second to cut out for the flowers in a slightly softer tone.

Using Tattered Rose Distress Ink I spritzed Vintage Eggshell Ribbon to match the colour.

I paired it with Vintage Black Ribbon to create a striking contrast.

To get the wavy effect on the ribbon, simply use transparent sticky dots to position the tails.

After assembly I played with Cosmic Shimmer pearly Glue which we all seem never to tire of. In this case Black Pearl PVA all around the edges or as far as you can reach.

Two black Creative Expressions Hat Pins

and an odd button to complete the picture.

Hope you like it!
