The new book at The Library Challenge is The Rose Garden. Not a book I have read or heard of. I took my inspiration from the cover and the description provided by Marina. I decided this die cut lady looked like she would be in a rose garden, the faded colours representing passage of time.
I went through some of my backgrounds that I had previously created and thought this one worked well. Then I used an Altenew Bamboo roses stamp set, a Woodware sentiment and a TL die. I cut the die from some paper in a TL magazine intending it to be just the frame, but I loved the effect on her dress so I changed my mind and paper pieced her feet, face, arm and the roses in the frame with pink card instead. I used some distress ink with water to colour the roses. Also randomly with my finger placing ink spots on the card.
