Everything’s coming up roses

It’s my turn to set the challenge over at Daring Cardmakers this week. As one of June’s birth flowers is the rose I thought we’d go that way but with an option of using yellow (with a rose image or with any other image/technique) as yellow roses represent friendship. 

I went for vivid yellow roses against a green backdrop. The flowers are stamped with some masking and coloured with pencils. A bit of inky stencilling for the background, a bold sentiment and a few nail art gems to finish. I haven’t made a square card in ages, it was nice to use different proportions for a change.

Beautiful yellow roses, Joanne, and I love the green inking with stenciling over top - so effective!!

Roses in bloom here so that is timely. Very pretty with the yellow and green and I like the stencil choice of a geometric tiny pattern to contrast the natural of the flower but the scale is nice-it is not competing...Almost like a lattice. Fun to change up card sizes! :) Hugs Margot
