Country Rose

Hello Connie here today with a country rose.

Today I am sharing the Die-Namites Rosy Rose, I started off with watercolor paper and using Spun Sugar distress inks on my palette with a waterbrush I added the distress ink to the paper the size of my rose die cut. Die cut the rose out and glued it onto my water color paper as soon as the paper was dry. Then I cut around the die leaving a little border around the die.  I decided I wanted a little more contrast in the color so I added some pink chalk inside to give the look of a little more dimension in the rose.

 I then cut a 4" by 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and added one of the Memory Box Country stitches dies for my borders. You know I had to use some Distress inks in Antique Linen to shad around the edges. I used foam dots behind the Memory Box Fresh Foliage die and the rose die when adding them to the card.  I finished it off using a Poppystamps Pinpoint Main Street tags die , with a stamped sentiment from Taylored Expressions many mini occasions sentiment stamp set. 

Here is a closeup of the rose and the stitched border.

I think next time I will try using the rose with some pattern paper behind, or you can keep all the insides in the die too or inlay with another paper the uses are endless :)

Here are pictures of the dies I used with the links above in the description.
