Fifth Avenue Floral rose card, Sept. Class

Just a couple more pictures to show you how different the rose can look with other colors or even a couple of colors. I used to paint but have never done watercolor so this was my first try.

The trick is to go lightly with color as you can add more. You can't take it away.

Here is another rose. This rose and technique is very addictive. Well I can't throw anything a way. Yes I had the polka dot piece of paper left over and thought great place to use it. I like the olive tones, more suited to roses, I think.

















This one again is two pieces. Textured white at top and just some garden green cardstock at the bottom. I stamped the rose on the white as well as the green. This rose was with a touch of the new crushed curry and melon mambo.

My roses are growing without any Miracle Grow. Actually I can grow these roses.

P.S. Did I tell you that I stamped the rose onto shimmery paper with versamark and sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat set. Then when you spritz the paper with water and touch the water with ink, it just spreads.

Now if I can figure out how to do a video, I'll show you. Otherwise come to class. I think this will be one of the cards offered as come make a few.

May, 2009 when I started the blog.

It's still a learning experience. If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month. For class dates go to my Stampin Up events calendar: http://www.joanlowder.stampinup.net/

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
