Go For Greece Blog Hop: Graceful Rose

Hello! Welcome to the Go For Greece Blog Hop! Go For Greece is a training group put on by the lovely Kylie Bertucci, and we are all building our Stampin’ Up! businesses. Thank you for your support as I build mine!

For my card, did a little watercolor emboss resist with Brusho again. I love the colors I get from just sprinkling on the color and also love the colors I can make by combining different Brusho colors. I demonstrated this technique in this video if you’d like to see how I did it. This time I heat embossed the huge rose from Graceful Garden on Watercolor Paper with Versamark and White embossing powder. I embossed the sentiment (from Flirty Flowers) at the same time, and I used my Stamparatus (available in early June!) to position the sentiment and make sure I had good ink coverage on my rose.

The colors on the rose are Gamboge and Yellow, which I sprinkled on before spritzing, and on the stem and leaves I used Moss Green. After spritzing, I created the green background color in a paint tray with two shakes of Yellow and one tiny shake of Prussian Blue. A little goes a long way with that color. After I watercolored the whole background, I added water to a few spots of the rose, then added some Brilliant Red in those spots.
