Afternoon Bloggers

For this card I used the Clarity Rose stamp which I acquired recently.  Using  Black Archival ink I stamped
the rose onto watercolour card and coloured  with Distress inks, a brush and some water. using Pickled Raspberry for the pink roses and Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey for the yellow rose.  For the leaves I used Shabby Shutters and Forest Green. I die cut the image with a Spellbinder Die lightly shaded with Pickled Raspberry and then matt  this onto another mat cut from a Spellbinder Die shaded with a heavier application of Pickled Raspberry ink.  The background is Squeezed Lemonade overstamped with  one of the Clarity Club Stamps using  a third generation of Pickled Raspberry ink..  Finally this was matted onto another card shaded with more Pickled Raspberry.  The sentiment is from the Clarity Happy Stamps stamped with Black Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I hope you like the finished card, any comments you make will be very welcome.
