Page 5 and 6

After another hectic week I got to relax today and finally got around to doing another couple of pages of my Maya Road postage stamp book.  I've been dying to use this stamp, it's Rose from the Divine Missives range by Stampington.  I'm a huge Rennie Mackintosh fan so I just had to have it.  I stamped some other Mackintosh roses around the edge from a Circa Designs stamp in Brilliance inks and coloured in the roses and the vine on the main image with metallic pens.  The whole tag was inked with Tattered Rose distress inks.  So, this is page 5 and it looks much more sparkly in real life.  
 
This is page 6.  The flower, background and saying are Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamps (Art-fully Said).  This is my first ever Wendy Vecchi stamp, I have another on back order.  I blame Ms Elbourne for this latest addiction.  To be honest, I didn't have to do much, these stamps are so stunning they don't need much else to complete the piece.  The lighter butterfly is a Maya Road chipboard one coloured with Brilliance ink and a couple of pearls for the body, and the darker one is a fabric one with beads stitched on.  I picked up a pack of them at an Ally Pally show, but can't remember which stand!

I can imagine how sparkly the top one is by the way the bottom corner has caught the light, it's gorgeous. I bet you love Past Times with all their Rennie Mackintosh stuff :P I love that shop.

Love how you did the background on the second one, almost looks like sun shining through after the rain... if that makes sense?
