Flower Birthday Cards: Painted Roses

Painted Roses - blog.Stamp4Joy.comWith the Timeless Elegance Designer Paper collection you can make exquisite flower birthday cards with little effort.  The paper is so beautiful to begin with, just a little stamping or coloring is all you will need to make memorable homemade birthday cards they'll cherish.  Did you know this pattern was hand-drawn by one of the Stampin' Up! artists?  Remarkable!  They are so very talented.

Here I used some subtle water coloring over the roses with Watermelon Wonder ink.   To me, it looks like coloring on old black and white photos.  I love it!  The photo doesn't really display how beautiful this really is.  The shading is already done for you in the drawing, so it's simple, simple, simple!

I grabbed the greeting from Butterfly Basics and embossed it in black.  I thought the feminine handwriting font was the perfect companion to the beautiful floral pattern.

ILCS33 - www.iLoveCardSketches.comThe inspiration for this flower card came from this week's card making template at i Love Card Sketches.  Instead of cutting card stock to mirror the wavy edge and then adding things over top, I let the watercolored roses suggest the curvy pattern.
