Getting Artsy with New Rogue Redhead Stamps!

Today marks another fabulous Rogue Redhead Designs release, and this month it's a double delight, with a new Mardi Gras-themed mini plate called Carnival Dreams, along with a full plate of fun sayings and cute images, called Just Sayin'!

I love New Orleans and have been there several times, but never during Mardi Gras.... it's one of those things on my to-do list!  My card features some of the wonderful Mardi Gras images from Carnival Dreams.  I decided to get all artsy and shabby with this one.  First, I embossed the main image with some seriously glittery gold embossing powder from Zing!  This stuff means business!  Then I pulled out my tiny Cotman watercolor set and colored in the image.  Here's a little close-up so you can see the sparkle:
The background panel is some of Tim's Distress Ink Core'dinations paper, run through a fleur de lis embossing folder and sanded.  I added a bit of gold Stickles to the harlequins.  I also diecut a green fleur de lis, and punched a little tag with the sentiment.  Some funky trim finishes it off - perfect for a Fat Tuesday party invite!

Now, for a little enabling... here's the announcement direct from the Queen Rogue herself:

"Rogue Redhead Designs is pleased to announce two new releases, Just Sayin' and Carnival Dreams, to brighten up your winter!

The colours are perfection for the theme of the stamps, with a touch of mystery surrounding it.
