The rose was die cut from white card using a Heartfelt Belle Rose Die and then I took the corresponding stamp from the Heartfelt Bold Bella Rose stamp set and used Sunset Orange, Cranberry and Citrus Adirondack Pigment Inks. I love to make these inks give a watercolour effect by keeping the stamp on the desk, adding the colours where you choose, lightly sprtizing the stamp with water and then putting the paper on top of the stamp (instead of the stamp to the paper). I love how the colours run into one another creating new colours and contrasts. When dry, I adhered the rose to the background.
I printed the sentiments from my computer and edged them in Vintage Photo Distress Ink (of course!) and added them to the tin. I wanted to continue the garden theme by adding a fence to the front of my tin. I die cut the fence and painted it with a white paint and added Vintage Photo Distress inks to the edges. I love the shabby feel of this rose - and it has got me started on Mother's Day projects... more of that another day!!!
