Rose Garden

Hello!  Hope you are having a great day!  Today I would like to share with you a project I made using the new release S-122 Rose Garden stamp set.  I just love the roses in this set.  The detail is just wonderful and the images heat emboss beautifully!

To make this wall hanging, I first cut/embossed some black cardstock using the Grand Decorative Ovals One #3 (with #1 being the smallest in the set) from Spellbinders.  I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Watermark stamp pad and sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heat set using my embossing gun.  I stamped the large rose image from S-122 Rose Garden set using Versamark Watermark stamp pad and sprinkled more white embossing powder, heat set and allowed it to cool.  Then using my Distress Markers, I water colored the image using a Niji water brush medium.  I love watercoloring with my Distress Markers because its just so darn easy!  I am alittle lazy about my coloring and alcohol markers can take alot of time!  LOL  I did the same thing with the leaves.  I assembled this by popping up the roses and leaves using some foam squares.  I used a bow tying helper to tie my bow and glued the ends of my bow to the back of my decorative oval.  Then using glue dots, I attached the rose in the middle of my bow.  Here are a few close-ups....

I think this would make a great present for your best friend, don't you?  I absolutely love those roses in the Rose Garden set.....just beautiful!  Have a great day!
