Birthday Roses


Welcome!  I have been playing with a stencil, a die, stamps,  Ombre colors, and water coloring to create this birthday card.  I made the Ombre background by inking DOI Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio with Gina K Stencil Rounded Swirl on white CS.  I stamped the Rose stamp from GKD Tropical Blooms with GKD Amalgam Black ink and water colored the image with a water brush using the same green inks and Picked Raspberry DOI. Used GKD die to cut the rose and attached using foam to pop up the image.  Stamped the GKD sentiment with the pink ink. Finished with a green card base.

Oooh love your stenciled ombre background, beautiful color! Your roses are so pretty, loving the soft lovely color. Isn't it wonderful to be able to water color with Distress Oxide inks, or any inks for that matter? Well done! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, Water Color Challenge, Donna, DT Member.
