Welcome to my Flower-of-the-Month post for June! You may have already known that the birth flower is the Rose. My grandfather is fantastic at growing roses, but I am just an adequate gardener, so I haven’t even tried!
This series is my personal challenge to use stamps I already own to make at least one card using the birth flower for that month. You can find all the cards in the series here.
I colored my image with alcohol markers and I intended them to be more subdued, vintage colors. That is why I outlined the image in my very lightest yellow. I was super lucky that I had this scrap of patterned paper already cut to size! I matted the whole thing with black to finish it off and to tie in the sentiment I heat embossed in gold. I would love to enter this project in the Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge.
Supplies: I Brake for Stamp June’s Rose, Bubble Wrap Lattice and Flowers set (sentiment), My Mind’s Eye Bramble Rose 6x6 patterned paper pad, Recollections Platinum embossing powder, Memento Black ink, Versamark embossing ink, Gina Marie designs X Stitched Circle die
