Thinking of you - Inspired by All the Little Things #67

Hello everyone! Me again :)! 

I'm trying to play along at some challenges these days :)! 

Today I'm using another new stamp set from The Ton's October Release. This is a collaboration of The Ton and EunJi. The roses from this Country Rose Cluster are designed by EunJi, and Effie created a beautiful cluster using them. EunJi has the roses on her Etsy shop DotBStamp.  For the sentiment I used the Daffodil Greetings set. (It was an incentive gift with purchase and will not be available for purchase until November 2017.)


I was inspired by the picture at Inspired by All the Little Things #67 (s. below). I tried to represent the soft pink (coral) roses in an autumnal atmosphere. 

I started by heat embossing the Country Rose Cluster on Canson watercolor paper in Rose Gold. I then colored the flowers using pink and gold pearl pigment mixed with watercolor. I tried to keep the image very soft. I drew the stripes using brown watercolor mixed with golden pearl and splattered the same color on the background. (The pictures don't show the shimmer.) I blended the edges with Brushed CorduroyDI and foam mounted the colored panel on a dark brown cardbase. The sentiment from Daffodil Greetings was white heat embossed on a strip of cardstock I colored in various brown and gold. I added gold foil underneath the sentiment strip and foam mounted it onto the card.
To finish off I added some sequins from I Dream in Peach Couture Mix.

It was not my usual way to color roses. And the vintage look isn't my style either. But somehow I love how it turned out :) .

Thank you so much for coming!
Have a happy day!

This is so soft and pretty TaeEun and I love the stripes you have made, I actually thought it was a backing paper they are so beautifully done! The brown edges and bits of brown give it a vintage feel too. x
