AN ORANGE ROSE!


Hi peeps  hope you are enjoying the hot weather - have been waiting several months for it to arrive, but now I'm too hot!  The heavens have just opened here in West Yorkshire and it's pouring down, which is a blessing for me, and for the garden!

My card today is for the current Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge and I have used some of the stamps from the Harlequin Rose again, with a very different effect from the previous one.

I painted the Rose and leaves with Distress Inks and SU Mint Macaron for the pale green.
Edges of cardstock coloured with Distress Inks, applied with a TH Inkssentials  applicator.
SU Linen  Twine attaches the heart.



This is the colour swatch and inspiration picture for the
  Chocolate Baroque Challenge -



Happy crafting ~ hugs,
