Country Roses



Using another new set of stamps from Hero Arts called Two Birds, a cling set with birds and this beautiful spray of roses. It was stamped over a digital excerpt from Anne of Green Gables, one of my favorite books, coloring in the leaves and stems with colored pencils, and paper-piecing the flowers with peachy-pink cardstock. Then I added some digitally-shrunken Heart Winged Butterflies, the sentiment, and a little pink pearl heart. Everything was sponged with Distress Tattered Rose ink.

Supplies: CG152 Two Birds, F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly, CL184 Thoughtful Messages, parchment and pink card stock, Palette Burnt Umber, Distress Tattered Rose inks, Prismacolor pencils, pink and olive green, pink pearl heart
