Rose Vine


I decided to do a watercolored piece today. The color challenge, CC493, on Splitcoaststampers is to use Stampin'Up!'s Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Lost Lagoon. I didn't have any of those colors but they don't mind if you just come close as you can. I did use SU Cameo Coral for the base card.

My image is a digital from Fitztown called Valentine 2. I didn't make a valentine but it sure would make a pretty one. It could also be a pretty anniversary card. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping/Big Wishes II.

I used watercolor paper, a brush, water, and markers to color.

The coloring is off the charts for this card. The rose stem and leaves are vintage perfection. What better way to frame the sentiment! - Jim

So pretty Benzi I like the frame image you used -I think this would be a great wedding card as well

Of course I love the image, surprised that it was a digi too. Very pretty. Your w/coloring is so beautiful, and the shading you've done is awesome. Love the soft pastel colors. Yes it would make a terrific valentine card, but it's equally stunning this way. TFS & Hugs

This is stunning. Just love that rose frame. Wanted to say thank you so much for sticking with me on my blog. Just know that I appreciate your friendship. Don't think that I have forgotten about you. I think of you often. There are just times I cannot think to function because I am so stressed. I hadn't slept in 3-1/2 months a full night. I will explain later. I thank you so much for being my friend!
Bear Hugs,
Carol
