rennie roses...

Hello!  Popping in with a clean and simple card that I made using the Altenew Rennie Roses stamps and dies for the following challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches, The Flower Challenge (CAS) and Altenew October Inspiration challenge.   I stamped the flowers on smooth bristol cardstock with VersaMagic watermark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.   I then pulled out my ZIGs markers and did simple watercoloring of each of the roses in the colors from the inspiration photo (pink, yellow, blue) and the leaves in green.   I let them dry and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.   I diecut some white cardstock with a rectangle die, placed the panel in my stamping tool and arranged the flowers and leaves so I could determine where to stamp the sentiment.  Once that was figured out I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink.  I decided that the panel looked a bit plain so I did some selective embossing in the approximate areas where the flowers would be adhered and then adhered the flowers with foam tape and the leaves with adhesive.   The panel was then adhered to a light gray cardstock base.   I want to thank the ladies over at the Flower Challenge for picking my card from last month's challenge as one of the Top Picks!   That really made my day!  (Compensated affiliate links listed below and used where possible at no cost to you.)
