Watercoloured Rose


Hi everyone.  I had some fun playing with watercolor paper and re-inkers.  I heat embossed this large rose from SU! and then wet my paper and added re-inkers with lots of water.  I splattered the rose with white and also with Crystal Effects.  For the leaves, I simply die-cut them from watercolor paper, sponged on the green ink and then used my Aqua Painter to add water.  A simple sentiment finishes the card.  It's fun playing with watercolor paper ... you just never know what you're going to get! :)

I'm going to enter this into a new challenge blog run by the very talented Virginia Lu ---  Virginia's View Challenge #1 is Watercoloring.  There are lots of very beautiful entries ... so much to look at!

And I'm entering this into the 1st challenge at the new challenge blog - Time Out, run by two of my friends, Sandie and Nonni.  The first challenge is to be inspired by these words:  Dancing in the Rain.  My rose has been out dancing in the rain :) .... can you see the raindrops on it??

On another note, I am honored today to have one of my cards featured at Paper Smooches - thanks Kim!  Check out this link to take a look.
