Roses

So way back when, like 3 weeks ago, PTI showcased coloring on colored paper for their Make It Monday series. I made these. Then I never took a picture. Thats how my life has been going lately. Anyway I love the way they turned out, and I have a few more to show you tomorrow.For this first card I used a Kraft base. I stamped on polka dots using versamark ink. Next I stamped my rose on Blueberry sky cardstock. I added details with my copic markers. I stamped the leaves on Spring moss and again went back with copics. I cut a piece of vellum and punched it with my fiskars punch. I stamped on the sentiment in Enchanted evening ink. A little ribbon finishes off the card. Most supplies are by Papertrey Ink.
This card is very similar. Main difference is the colors and the orientation. I used orange zest and summer sunrise.
