Pin It Now!
For the first rose, I stamped this lovely image from Fifth Avenue Floral (retiring...boo hoo!) in Jet Black Staz-On on Watercolor Paper. Then I very simply colored in the darker areas with a Regal Rose Stampin' Write Marker one petal at a time, and smoothed and blended the color out over the whole petal. A touch of Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write marker in the middle added a little extra color.
For the second, I used the same image and the same watercolor paper, but used Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. It doesn't look like it, but I used the same Regal Rose Stampin' Write marker, too. Much softer and very shabby!
For the final rose I tried something a little different. I used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder with the Versamark on Watercolor Paper. and used a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker very sparingly, with more Daffodil Delight in the middle. Really showy in person!
So there you have it - no fancy shmancy alcohol markers needed. :)
