Birthday rose

Hi again, I was trying to make this rose red.
 The tombows I used were Chinese red and then crimson. I think I need to visit my sister and stamp some more on watercolour paper so I can really work the colour up, as the cardstock was getting too saturated!

I'm linking up to the challenge at Seize the birthday where the theme is anything goes birthday, which I've done. or there's the optional topping of party.

Tombow markers; Stampin Up rose stamp; versafine ink & clear embossing powder; Memory Box Fresh Foliage die; distress inks; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Lovely Cathy. .. in spite of it not being red... water colour pencils could help if you have them and its wet and want to deepen colours.
Great you can share stash with sisters. Both mine live nearby but no crafts. :(

Wow, this is gorgeous. Love it in pink, even though you were trying for red.

Maybe not as red as you wanted but it is still a lovely colour. A much deeper shade than on the previous card. Love the 3D effect. Hugs Mrs A.
