Roses Make a Point!


Hello!  Today I am posting a card made with Flourishes stamps for the challenge at Timeless Tuesday to use dots to color your background and/or part of your image. I had colored a background of white Cardstock with multi color dots but decided it was way too busy with my image so nixed that idea. I stamped the Rose from A Year of Flowers  with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on white cardstock and colored the petals  with dots of Copics R20,81,83,85 and the leaves with G40,82, and YG 03.  Need a bit of practice with this technique of pointillism.  I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches to assemble my card design with a white card base, layered with a mat of green, a layer MME's paper embossed with Cuttlebug EF Polka Dots, and a die cut layer of textured green cardstock under the image. Used a corner punch on the corners of the green mat.  Added 3  Prima roses of varying shades of pink and 3 pearls to embellish. I was trying to pick up on the colors of the pink "points" in the rose. Sentiment from Flourishes Timelines was stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on an oval cut with Spellbinders die and outlined with Memento Marker.
