Roses for You

Here's another card using my current favorite Roses For You stamp set.


supplies: purple, aqua, periwinkle, and black cardstock, watercolor paper, Simon Roses for You, Ranger Archival Jet Black, wilted violet, blueprint sketch, mermaid lagoon, and mowed lawn distress inks, water, water brush, Winnie & Walter In a Word Hello die, Simon Moonshine sequins, corner chomper

As I did on THIS card, I used the heart of roses from the stamp set to cover most of my watercolor panel.  I then used a few of the new 2015 distress ink colors to paint in the roses, rounded my corners at the bottom, and then attached the panel to a purple card.  I die-cut the hello 4 times, using cardstock colors that best matched each of the colors of my roses, plus black, and then glued them together, off-setting just a tad each time to give it some depth.  I always like to sprinkle on some of these moonshine sequins.....they give just a little glimmer without being too noticeable.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how nicely these colors go with each other - this blue girl loves them!

So loving this card. The colors are fabulous and the offsets on the sentiment die are really great at giving more color and dimension. Perfect card Lin.

Saw this over at Flickr and recognised it was one of yours even before I saw who had made it. So pretty.
