Three Little Words

Like everyone else who has discovered watercolor roses, I just can't stop making them! We will be doing this card at our club on Tuesday night and Thursday afternoon! I hope I don't ruin the surprise, but I think everyone will just be excited.
I used Three Little Words (pg. 136 - $13.95) for this card. You just don't realize how many "three little words" there are - so I'm going to tell you what's in this set. I miss you, you you you, thinking of you, I love you, so very sorry, thanks so much and of course, the beautiful stamp that actually says Three little words . . . This one set can make so many different cards and there's nothing stopping you from using other word stamps to make your own three little words.

I used the embossing folder Manhattan Flower with vellum cardstock and then flipped it over to the debossed side . That allowed me to use the Three little words stamp on the top and still look really good (picture doesn't do it justice) and my watercolor rose! I decided to branch out from the white embossing powder that I've been using and used Rose Red craft ink and clear embossing powder. I really like the way the darker lines pop. I think the ways of doing this are limitless and so you are going to continue to see roses and every other flower I can watercolor this way.

Hope this inspires you to think out of the box and try a new color or new technique!
