Yellow Rose



Good Sunday morning everyone! I hope your weekend is going the way you want! I know mine has been relaxing and very enjoyable! And today I am going to my friend Becky's house to have even more fun stamping away! I don't really know why I am up so early today other than I can feel a migraine coming on. So I am going to try and nip that and keep it under control (hopefully).

Today's card was inspired by several cards that I have seen and even have done before. This is the watercolor rose technique that I have done before (thanks to my friend Emily that showed me this technique). This time I embossed the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral onto watercolor paper and then did the technique. I tried it on the shimmery white cardstock but it just didn't come out at all right. Maybe my cardstock is old? Not sure but there were some real issues with it! Then I used my Crushed Curry reinker. I really like the results. I just love this technique!! And I have seen people use it with other stamps. So I may have to give that a try as well. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  4. Wow, this is stunning. Love your style! I've had problems with the shimmery white paper, too. Mine's old, but my upline used some new stuff for a stamp camp last week and hers didn't work well either. I wonder what's up with that? Anyhow, fabulous card.

  5. Deb, I saved your card idea when I saw it because it's one of my favorite cards ever with this technique. I'm going to teach this at my club this week. Do you mind if I post my card (which is an exact case of yours) on my blog and link back to you? I'll also give you credit at my club. My gals are always looking for great blogs to stalk! Thanks either way.
