Water Color Rose Card

Hi all, here is a card made from one of my new stamps. It is a mosaic stamp and the pieces actually match up but I wanted to mount them as individual vignettes. I watercolored them with Tombow markers and popped them up with dimensionals. The card is photographed in front of my rose garden that happens to have the same color roses in abundance!
The embossed DP was from a specialty paper pack and is layered onto the same yellow as the roses tips are. I inked it in yellow and pink to match. I love the vine ribbon and thought it would go nicely with the roses. Gold "pearls" are used as an accent on the base and on each corner of the rose panels. Finishing up is the bow made from a taffeta two tone wire edge ribbon that I purchased to make vintage ribbon flowers but since it was a perfect match, I guess I will have a few less ribbon roses!
I have a few projects that are in the line to be done and will post those as they are marked off the list! I also have a kit coming from Jerri K that is a card that incorporates the embossed cutout technique and when I finish I will post it also. Thanks for all the encouraging comments, I love to hear from those who stop by my little blog!
I was thinking about doing a tutorial so if you want to see anything special just let me know!

Until the next post,
Comments welcome, let me know if you want to see a tutorial!
