Glorious Rose

I think the stamps we choose are as much a part of us as the time spent with them. I knew when I saw this Art Neko stamp called Old Fashioned Rose, that I would very much enjoy colouring it, and I did.  I have a wonderful friend who belongs to a International Women's Sorority called Beta Sigma Phi, and the Yellow Rose is a symbol of their sisterhood signalling love and friendship, so I will send it to her along with an envelope for her to use for one of her sorority sisters.
For this card, I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder and using my Zig Brushes watercoloured building up the colour using three different yellow colours, one of which has the orange tones and using two colours of green for the leaves.  I wanted to keep with the vibrancy of the yellow, so I stamped the Rose sentiment using a burnt orange shade of ink.  I die cut the panel with the stitched rectangles and added the yellow matting, along with a few sequins.  I am very pleased with the finished card and I hope you enjoy it as well.  
Thanks so much for dropping by.
