Pretty Water Colored Roses

Hello my crafty friends! Well, my summer is off to a rocky start but I finally got in my craft room last night to play a little. This past week has been busy finishing up the semester with 4 shows and in the middle of it all my refrigerator decided to die on me UGH!!! I'm still waiting for it to be repaired!

Here are a couple cards I made using my 
Paper Smooches stamps :)

I white embossed these pretty roses from the Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts stamps onto water colored paper. I used my Zig Real Brush markers and my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to color them in. (Colors used- SN Aqua: Blossom, Zig: Pale Pink, Light Carmine, Camine Red. Light Green, Pale Green) I used water and my Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle Pen to blend. To my surprise the yellow from the red tone markers separated while drying and I got the coolest effect. These roses look just like ones from the garden at my old house. I went back over with the pink the next day and love how they turned out. 

The embossing folder on the left is from the We R Memory Keepers Next Level 3D- Woven and the one on the right is from a Cuttlebug set called Decorative Tile. I fussy cut the roses and arranged them in layers, popping up the largest roses. 

I used my new Gina Marie Designs die for the stitched scallop frame and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  The stitched banners are from My Creative Time Ribbon End Dies. 

This scallop edge die is from Mama Elephant and the sentiments are both from the PS Lovely Thoughts stamps. 

Thanks so much for hoppin by! 
Have a wonderful day!
