Cardz 4 Galz is to create something using your favourite flower and to say why it's your favourite. My favourite flowers are roses because I love the way they smell. I grew up in a house with a garden full of rose bushes in all different colours.
The rose on the top right is probably one of my oldest stamps which I bought when I first started card making over twelve years ago. I can't remember who it's made by! I stamped the road and coloured it with watercolour paints.
The panel behind was created by stamping in Versamark and embossing with white powder. Then I painted over the top with watercolours. When the paint was almost dry I rubbed gently over the top with a tissue to take the paint off the white embossing.
I layered these elements onto pink and white card and some rose patterned paper, and then embellished my card with a pink ribbon and bow and some ribbon roses. I bought the ribbon roses, but I need to find some time to learn how to make them (there are some good tutorials on Pinterest).
I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Galz.
