Snuggles and Smooches Roses

I am excited to announce that I have been chosen for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge Team!  Starting today, my Thursday posts will be based on the challenge sketch or colors.  I am delighted to be included with this group of talented ladies!

Here is this week’s sketch…


And my card…


Using Versamark, I stamped the squiggles from “Snuggles and Smooches” on watercolor paper, and I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I put a few drops of Pink Pirouette and Rose Red Reinkers in my paint tray, and I watercolored the squiggles with my Aquapainter.  I started with a light wash of Pink Pirouette over the entire area, and I added Rose Red in streaks until I was happy with the effect.  I hand-cut the roses after they were dry.

My background color is Wild Wasabi.  I used plain cardstock as a mat, and I added an angled piece of Irresistibly Yours specialty designer paper.  This designer paper is already clear-embossed with patterns, and I chose the leaf pattern to go with my flowers.  I used a brayer to add color to the paper.

The garden pick was cut from watercolor paper with the Handpicked Framelit Dies.  I love that heavyweight paper for garden picks.  The stamps on the pick are part of “From the Garden”.

Thank you for checking out my first Thursday Challenge Team card!  You can see all of the Challenge Team cards and entries at Create with Connie and Mary.
