A Rose is a Rose

Dear Ones~
A lovely, sunny day here - albeit cold. Only 17, but I'll take the sunshine. Today's card was made for 2 challenges:

Just Us Girls: it's color challenge week. Here are the colors we were to use....
StampTV MIUM - use two different stamps and color one of the images.

Here's my card:
So, just a simple card this time. No special techniques, although I did some watercoloring on the rose. This time I used real watercolors. I need to practice more with those. There are so many color mediums out there, and I want to try them all!!

Here are the Ingredients:

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. I'm tired of telling you to stay warm, dear reader, so I'll just say think spring!!!!


  1. I love the water coloring on your rose, I love your rose! You nailed the color combo perfectly, I don't think I could have pulled that one mind draws a blank lol It's hard to 'randomly' place pearls and rhinestones for accents hahaha I always forget I have those fancy tags....thanks for the reminder!

  2. Judy, Your coloring if Gorgeous...honestly! That rose is so beautiful! I so agree with you on all the mediums out there. At times I feel so behind the times or in another world when I hear or read about other types of mediums and have no earthly idea what they are talking about! So glad you linked up with us again at JUGS~ Enjoy your sun even if it's still frigid!
