Mother's Day Rose


Hi, only a few days holiday left now and it'll be back to work! Thought I'd better make more Mother's Day cards.
 I stamped this rose onto watercolour paper this time, with Versafine ink and clear embossed it. I used a tombow marker and a waterbrush to colour it. I often just use the marker without any water but think I like the shading better this way. 

I'm entering the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, where the theme is to use markers in your project.

At Addicted to CAS, the code word is flower.

The challenge at Scrapbook Boutique is to create a Mother's Day card and use inspiration from a delicious looking cupcake photo.


I was inspired by the luscious roses on the cakes and by the background patterns on the tray.

Materials used: Stampin Up rose stamp and embossing folder; Memory Box leaves die; Tombow marker; distress ink on leaves; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting:)
