Bamboo Roses

I couldn't resist jumping right in to play along with the new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and paired it with Altenew's January Inspiration Challenge!  I just loved this inspiration photo and the golden yellow tones which led me immediately to my Bamboo Rose stamp set which, sad to say, I've had for weeks and never used until now.  

I gold embossed the images on some Master's Touch watercolor
paper (found at Hobby Lobby and a cheaper alternative), then colored in with my fave Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. The brown edging was die cut using Reverse Confetti's Edge Essentials die.  The sentiment is from Altenew's Super Script stamp set and was stamped with Soft Suede ink by SU.  

Thanks for stopping by...
