Roses are red...

These roses are a wonderful digital stamp from the Sketching Stamper, check her out, she has some magnificent works for sale! I love the roses and I am happy the way I colored them, but all together this card isn't really what I was aiming for - it is too restless. Oh well, live and learn I guess...

This card is for Stampin' for the Weekend "Going digital!" -challenge and 2 sketches 4 you Kazan's sketch 28

Stamp: Sketching Stamper roses (digital), Scrappy Cat flourishes and BG Eva Bitsy
Ink: Distress ink Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, VersaColor Burgundy
Coloring: watercolor pencils (dry)
Other: White stickles
Paper: watercolor paper


  1. Kaunis kortti. Hienosti olet tehnyt omana näköisesi tuosta luonnoksesta.

    Kuivapastelleista. Hankin ensin muutaman irtokynä 18 kpl. 2-3 eri sävyä samasta väristä. Halusin kuitenkin ostaa itselleni värisarjan, joka on säilytyslaatikossa ja tilasin nämä. Periaatteessa tuo laatikko riittäisi minulle aivan hyvin. Lisäksi hankkisin tumman ruskean ja ihon värisen kynän. Aika paljon laatikosta löytyy lähes samoja värejä, joita minulla oli jo ennestään.

  2. this is such a beautiful card! :)
