Please meet Sir Walter Raleigh and Julia Child! The more I looked at their beautiful colors, the more I wanted to try and duplicate them. Here's what resulted:
These are actually anemones, but they can kind of look like simple roses, too. Most of these inks are also Wplus9 colors:Little Piggy and Sweet Nectar for the pink, Wild Mango accents for the yellow. Others used: Ranger's Lemon Twist for the yellow base, Hero Arts Orange Soda for the flower centers, and mowed lawn distress ink for the leaves. I think they are pretty spot on, don't you think?
