A rose is a rose is a rose...

although what I really mean is 'I love my new Distress markers!' When I made my tag for Hels' challenge last week I used an old Elusive images rose - which I use - a lot !
I decided to use my markers to stamp the image so my first was onto a Clarity postcard....
really pleased with this so a huff and puff and stamped onto tag.

Another huff and puff and onto a journal page in my Garden Journal which has craft paper pages, I don't show much of this as it's a bit personal, being a tribute to my Dad, a lifelong gardener both as a job and a hobby.

I ran out of huff, so I spritzed and added it to another journal,
this time my car journal, that I keep in the car for those times when I sit waiting for hubby or long journeys,
and then straight onto a page that I'd been using as mop up from making the tag.
Now in my book that's value for money! Oh! the colours I used - Barn Door and Peeled Paint. Thanks for looking, Chris

Wow! It sounds like you really put those markers and that image to good use. And look at all those journals. I usually have a few going at once, too, but I'm not as methodical as you are about what they're for! Very nice!

I am sending you this comment all the way from Krakow Poland we are sweltering in a heat wave of 26 c. You have certainly made good use of your rose stamp, beautiful work and so organised with all those journals, I have quite a few on the go but for no particular reason must try to be a bit more organised.
