Roses in Bloom is such a beautifully illustrated set. And I adore the fonts and sentiments included in the set. It’s a much more versatile set than one might think.
I really love how orange and blue look together! I think (I know) I'm ready for spring, judging by these bright, cheery colors. Although it's hard to tell, I used the Musical Backgrounds set to create a distressed background onto the cream cardstock. The roses were stamped and colored with Copics. I was going for a watercolor feel:
Now, for something completely different:
You may not find gray roses in nature, but I think they make a stunning, graphic background on this card! I used my Copics again, but left more white space on the roses. I used my blender pen a lot, too, to remove some color. Definitely achieved a more artistic look, almost like a charcoal drawing.
I think I can even pass this off as an anniversary card for my husband this year. What do you think?
