Craft Barn Weekly Challenge

This week's challenge on the Craft Barn blog is stars or stripes. I've actually managed to incorporate both. I was playing with some Hero Arts cling stamps and trying out a technique called rock & roll (I think). You ink up the stamp with one colour and then rock the edges of the stamp in another darker colour. The colours are Impress lemon yellow and poppy red. I decided to use these flowers to make a small arrangement in a  vase which I cut from striped patterned paper. I liked the look of the flowers against kraft card and as white is very effective on kraft as well, I added some punched stars.
I will add a sentiment as the need arises.


  1. I love your beautiful bouquet of flowers composed perfectly in the modern stripey vase, Rukhshana!! I'd love to have a vase like that! And the random whimsical stars floating around give it such fun pizzazz!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I like the stamping technique (I thought we were not allowed to use both)

  3. Like that ink technique, a very happy creation!

  4. Oh wow, your flowers are stunning! Not heard of this technique, will have to see if I can "rock & roll"? Kraft card always looks so cool but with your white stripes (& stars), ace combo! Ty for your visit, really kind. C

  5. I like the colours you have chosen for the "rock and roll" technique and they make a pretty display of flowers.


I read and value all your comments.
