Hello all, Kia here with you and I would like to share this beautiful Old Fashioned Rose with you today.
With the first day of spring being this past Monday, I have bright and yellow on my mind. One of my dear friends lives in British Columbia and she belongs to an International Womens Soriority, where the flower is the Yellow Rose. I would like to send her this card to give to one of her Sorority Sisters, hence my choice to watercolour in the yellows.
To start, I am using Fabriano 140lb Hot Press Watercolour Paper. I love this paper for heat embossed images as it embosses beautifully. I watercoloured the Rose using Zig Brushes in several shades of yellow, and for the leaves I used a few shades of greens. Once my image was dry I stamped the lovely Rose sentiment in a Burnt Orange, then matted using a coordinating yellow cardstock, and added a bit of bling via sequins to finish.
I very much enjoyed the relaxing time spent colouring this image and hope you enjoy this card as well. Thanks so much for visiting the Art Neko Blog today … I look foward to seeing you next time.
