Mother day roses

by | May 3, 2017 | Tuesday Morning Sketches | 2 comments

I was trying to figure out a color for my roses and I remembered that one of the reasons I love the distress inks is that they have so many options, I love that there is a color that technically falls between pink and purple on the color spectrum.  Perfect!  I didn’t really want to do pink, and I had already picked purple for the background so didn’t want to do it for the roses. The design I used for this card is Blooming lovely from Digistamp boutique.  I used my mini blending tool to color my heart in first with worn lipstick, and then with shaded lilac, misting with my mini mister in between colors.  I then watercolored my roses starting with straight victorian velvet and then mixed with picket fences.  After I had watercolored my vase and leaves, I used glossy accents to add a few drops of glitter to look like water drops.  I am submitting this card to Tuesday Morning Sketches #401.

This is the sketch I used on this project:
