Yellow Roses

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

On this card, I've used the stamp set that my friend lent to me.

I'm going to be singing The Yellow Rose of Texas all day now.

I stamped the flowers on Mixed Media paper with Warm Glow ink and colored
with Zigs and my trusty waterbrush.

For the background, I used a new to me embossing folder that a sweet friend
recently sent to me.  Thank you, my friend.

The narrow panel was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  It's a shame
that it's retired now!  I've added a slightly larger piece of linen patterned paper to
peek out from each side.

The yellow "splatters" are stamped and the black done with a Micron pen.

Darnell's I.D.E.A.S. inspiration this week is Embossing Folders for week three of the month.

Very pretty yellow roses Bonnie and the mix of embossing in the background looks beautiful and framed perfectly by the coordinating paper showing each side of the central panel. x

Now that song is going to be in my head too, Bonnie. Your yellow roses are beautiful and I love the two embossed panels together. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Time Out and The Flower Challenge.

Beautiful roses! I love this sketch and you've used it so well. Yes, it's a shame the Subtle EF is retired. I think I might be wearing mine out. Got to love those controlled splatters, too.
