A Rose for a Rose ...

 It's my Mum's birthday this month so I have been auditioning card designs!!  This is one of the contenders:

It is quite safe for me to share potential cards on my blog as Mum does not have access to the internet.  This one was inspired by the current challenge at the AAA Birthday challenge to use a stencil.

I heat embossed the stencil with white embossing powder before using a water colour wash to provide background colour.  The rose and rose buds were water coloured using distress inks and then fussy cut popped onto the card with foam adhesive.  The sentiment strip was also adhered using foam adhesive.

I used:
Memory Box Mesh Stencil
UNIKO Pure Florals: Rose
Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Ranger Emboss It dabber
Twinkling H2Os water colour
WOW White embossing Powder

Keep Crafting!
