Sparkling roses

 It's too hot to craft! I certainly had to choose something to make that didn't involve any heat embossing. 

So the inks and stencils came out to play. I made a background by blending distress inks over watercolour card then places a leaf stencil over it and sprayed with water, left it a few seconds to work them blotted up the excess. The leaves don't show up very well in the photo, only the ones on the darkest green show, but if you look closely you'll see it's an all-over pattern. 

Next I took the rose stencil and applied a pink glitter paste through it. By now it was so much more than "just a background" that I really didn't want to detract from it  by covering any of it up with an image, so I went for adding a simple die cut sentiment. 

I am sharing this with

Wow, Jane! This is great! I agree with you, it is quite enough as it is without an image. Gorgeous!
Hugs, Liv
