STAMPlorations Inspiration - Sympathy Roses


We've got some more inspiration for you on the STAMPlorations blog today.  I've used the Blossom Overture set to create a sympathy card.

I started with the small rose at the bottom, then two large roses and another small rose, adding masks to each one as I went along.  I made a palette of Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint and watercoloured the flowers, adding layers of colour for depth, and extending the colour beyond the images to give a hazy halo effect.  Oh, and some splatter :)  Added a sentiment, and it's done.

Pop over to the blog for more inspiration, and if you want to CASE any of the cards you see, why not add them to the Inspiration CASE playground for a chance to win prizes.


I'm entering this into Simon Says Monday Challenge, Anything Goes.
