Water Colour Roses

I just adore roses (anyone who has been to my house can atest to this as my garden is full of them!) Anyway, I fell in love with this gorgeous Stampin Up Fifth Avenue rose stamp as soon as I saw it. I came across this fantastic water colour technique that Patty Bennett had used for her roses. I have adapted the technique to suit the products that I have. Instead of using ink as Patty has done, I have used water colour crayons. I think that the end result is kind of pretty

Materials Used
Stamp: Stampin Up 'Fifth Avenue Rose', 'Frienship Blooms' (sentiment)
Paper: Stampin Up Designer Series Kiwi Kiss
Cardstock: Bazzill
Spellbinder Dies: label and flourish 12"
Water Colour Crayons, White Ink, Clear Embossing Powder

Another Stampin Up stamp collection which is now high on my 'wish list' is the 'A Rose Is a Rose' Set thanks to Kellie (LOL!) I have always admired what Kellie does with this set, anyway I finally got to play with this set on Saturday myself when I attended one of Kellie's workshops. This is one of the cards that we made

Just love the 2 tone shading effect you can achieve with this set

Thanks Kellie for such a great afternoon and also to Jess (aka Martha Stewart) for putting us all up for the afternoon. I say Martha Stewart cause she put on this amazing yummy spread for afternoon tea.

It was fun to just hang out and have a couple of kid free hours!
