... and more flowers!

I really have been digging out the old stamps this weekend! This is one of my oldest, the date on it is 1998. It's a Stampendous stamp called Rose Ring.


I used Nesties to cut it out and coloured it with watercolour pencils - for the larger flowers and the leaves, where I wanted to blend the colours, I coloured in with the pencils and then blended with a water brush, and for the tiny flowers I used the water brush to pick up colour from the tips of the pencils.

  7. What a fabulous CAS card! I like the way you've cut a ring with the sentiment peeping out: so simple but so stylish. Your colouring is lovely too. It can be difficult to get those tiny flowers so vibrant, so your trick with the brush is a good one. Thanks for sharing your card and joining us at Retro Rubber.
