Summer Rose for a Birthday


Hello!   Have you seen any of the great tutorial videos on water coloring techniques?  I found another one by Tasnim Ahmed using Distress Inks, Stamp, and a Brush. She makes it look so easy.   This CAS card features  a rose that I attempted to color.  I need a lot of practice but thought I'd use it on a card.

I love this card! The watercolored rose is gorgeous, and the sketchy look coordinates really well with the font of the sentiment. Thanks so much for playing along with us a second time this week at CAS Colours & Sketches! :) I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
