Looking Rosy


Morning.
Although they are calling for snow flurries today where I live and we are still wearing our winter coats, I just can't stop thinking about Spring and seeing the flowers and being out in the garden in the sunshine.
 So, here's my card and what I did to create it.

I began by masking the edges then inked up this 'new to me' stamp from Impression Obsession with Versamark ink and stamped.  I then heat embossed with white powder and painted the flowers with diluted Brushos and a paint brush.  It is so easy to get the variations of colour using the Brushos and they apply so easily.  
I fussy cut one of the roses out so I could apply it to my card front with pop dots.  
The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

 I am adding my card to these challenges:

Addicted to CAS- DELICATE




 Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Impression Obsession, STAMPlorations/ Versamark ink/ Memento bl ink/ pop dots/ white eb powder/ heat tool/ Brushos/ paint brush

Karen love your red card, it is a beauty. I thought of those in the eastern part of the countries (US, Canada) when I went to the nursery here in So CA. Everything is in bloom and it is certainly spring - but we are still in a drought. Stay warm.

So gorgeous, Karen. This reminds me of those folded ribbons roses. I'm sure it takes a knack to do coloring like this with brushoes.
