Roses are pink...


Had to take a quick break while getting ready for vacation and sneak in some stamping! I had this rose left over from a previous project - embossed in white, then spritzed with water and pink and yellow reinkers dabbed on it with brushes. I love the look of white on white with a pop of color, so started with a diamond EF for the base layer and added a couple of rows of white punched borders and a white Fleur De Lis die cut shape. The bow is compliments of the Bow Easy template. Will add a sentiment to the inside as needed. OK...back to work again. Have a wonderful 4th and stay safe!

STAMPS: Fifth Avenue Floral (SU), Delightful Dahlia (PTI)
PAPER: Hibiscus Burst (PTI), White, New Leaf (PTI)
INK: Versamark, Mauve Mist & Summer Sun reinkers, Always Artichoke (leaves)
ACCESSORIES: CB, Sizzix EF, Spellfinders Fleur De Lis Shapeabilities Pendant Die, Dilightful Dahlia die (PTI) - leaves, Hibiscus Burst satin ribbon (PTI), Kaiser silver pearls, MS arch lattice punch
