Sweetbriar Rose for CAS Watercolour

Hello peeps.  Here's a reminder that there's still time to join in at
CAS Watercolour Card Challenge


Here's this month's challenge

The die cut tag can be used as a bookmark by removing the brad.

The sweet flower image was stamped on watercolor paper with

The white outline embossing certainly sets off this lovely image. I love the way you've got the flower centers dark then so lightly done at the edges...it makes the petals just glow. Great idea with the bookmark too. It's just beautiful, Bonnie. TFS & Happy Easter.

Your watercolouring of this rose image is AMAZING, my friend. Love the colours, shading, and subtle background against the white embossing. How clever to attach this pretty tag with a brad so it can be used as a bookmark. xx

Your beautiful softly colored rose reminds me of a wild rose...so pretty and dainty. I LOVE your tag design and how it can be reused as a tag..creative idea my friend. TFS Bonnie. Hugs...

The white heat embossing keeps the rose looking so soft - perfect with the shades of pink you used. Love the bit of texture on the card base.

This is lovely, Bonnie. I'm glad everything is retired or I'd be trying to buy it all.

This is a gorgeous tag card and the pretty bright pink flowers and soft green leaves look wonderful here Bonnie and the stitching gives this a really elegant look. This certainly would be great as a bookmark too. x
