roses (by Veronica)


It is hard to choose a favourite from among these flower stamps, but I think the crackling rose has to be one of them, such a beautiful image and a delight to colour in.
I started with a piece of card that had been givwen the shaving foam with brusho treatment, and stamped the image onto it using black memento ink. My favourite watercolour pencils came out again to colour the rose. I stamped the 7"x7" base card with a light green adirondack ink using the studded lattice stamp, and sponged the dges with more of the ink. The mat for the rose is a dark green







For my second card I used a 5"x7" white base card blank and the floribunda net stamp. This was stamped in versamark ink onto green card and embossed with white. I used diluted white reinker to paint the flowers and leaves, and once that was dry I coloured the image with marker pens.
I used mats of pink and green card

I have really enjoyed playing with these stamps.
