Red Roses


It is day two of the new releases over at Flourishes illustrated by the ever so talented Marcella Hawley.   I could only wish that the roses in my garden were this beautiful. I love the layers of petals on  these flowers.  Such a dream to color. 

 

Roses.

I chose to color my roses and carefully cut them out. I stamped on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and colored with Flourishes Copics Collection Fuchsia.

I used my Spellbinders die to give the background some contrast.  I love the sentiment in this set. It can be used as a background or as your main image.  I added some checked black ribbon, sheer teal ribbon,  and pearls for my embellishments.  


  And we have a Mystery Blogger again today!  Comment on all the DT's blogs to be sure you don't miss a chance to win this gorgeous set....
