Summer Watercolored Rose

Ok, I’ll just say it, I love roses! My front walkway is lined with roses, and right now they are blooming their little hearts out! We actually didn’t even plant the roses, they were here when we bought our house, and I couldn’t be happier 🙂

This stamp set is called Graceful Garden and it has the most beautiful rose stamps! For today’s card, the biggest rose in the set was first stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I took an Aqua Pen and lightly watercolored the rose and the leaves.

Pretty Pointer: Heat embossing the outline of a stamp confines water within the lines of the stamped image. Give this a try on your next watercolor project!

If you love beautiful flowers, this is definitely the set for you!

    Peggy,

    You really do make Pretty Paper Cards! I love this rose — it is a gorgeous image and the way the watercolor technique looks on the petals is beautiful. Delicate, simple and elegant — my style!
