Rose Square #4 (DT colouring project by Sharon Jeffs)

Rose Square

by Sharon Jeffs

I love roses; everything about them is just so pretty.  This particular image appealed to me because of the frame around it which makes cutting it out really simple.

I stamped my Rose Square No.4 image using a Distress ink called Chipped Sapphire then used the ink and a waterbrush to shade the edges of the frame gently lighting up towards the centre, making the rose stand out.

I then coloured my rose in using Distress markers and a waterbrush to soften and blend the colouring.  I used Peeled Paint for the leaves and the stem and a combination of Barn Door and Worn Lipstick to colour the rose itself.

Thanks for visiting my project today!

  2. Really the border effect you achieved with the distress inks. I've really got to try that:)
