Watercolor Roses

This morning I cut my half dead roses back before the rain came. There were drops of water left on them from yesterday's rain so I entered the challenge of All Natural at Splitcoaststampers TLC601  

I was amazed at how it turned out. I had 3 red and 1 pink mini roses which I laid on watercolor paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug using A, B, and C pads. The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin kit and I used Perfect Plum ink. The base of the card is Blackberry bliss with a layer of Perfect Plum and then the watercolor paper. I'm looking forward to trying this technique again as I know it will never turn out the same.

Let me know what you think. I appreciate comments and thank you for them.

  1. Lovely! I have done flower pressing over the years for cards, but not in a long time and never with my Cuttlebug or Big Shot. This is a fabulous idea. I wish I still grew roses!
