Painted Roses

I had a friend over and she wanted to paint some roses! I pulled out a mass of acrylic paints and some watercolour card. We loved them so much we fussy cut them out and created a layout.
They were pretty easy to layer up with paint in the same tones, just keep adding white.
I used some Pinkfresh Studio papers to go with them. Hand cut some little frames and tags.
Then I added some white NUVO drops. Hot pink mini doilies from Doodlebug Design Inc.
A little thin wash tape in pink and gold.
Some watercolours in a quadrant in the background, then machine stitching in a big cross to divide. I did use some clear gesso on the white card stock first.
I wanted to use them all but it was overkill…..
Those pink doilies are awesome!
Some hot pink seam binding on the tag to finish.
This was a lot of fun and very satisfying painting the roses. I think I might do some more!

Happy Sunday everyone.
