Botanical Rose

If you haven't seen it yet, do go check it out.

I used the Altenew set Botanical Garden for this card.

I also used a marbled piece  for the 
Using Stamping, Marbling, Heat Embossing, Watercolor

I heat embossed this image and watercolored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

The top piece is marbled using shaving cream and re-inker using this technique.
I did a wash around the flower with watered down Zig colors.
(I scribbled the color on a palette with the markers and watered it down, 
adding the color to a wet background.)

The diagonal border was a piece smacked with VersaMark and embossed with
the same Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

I love how the embossing comes alive when the light hits it!

Remember Pretty in Pink?
I remember watching that movie with my daughters years ago.

My favorite kind of challenge

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
