Roses, An Obsession: Splattered or Not

Roses, An Obsession: Splattered or Not

Hi,

Susan here on the blog today. For today’s card, I used the Rose Bouquet stamp set – I am obsessed with it. I have always loved roses. My grandfather had a small but spectacular rose garden. I used to help him fertilize, cut roses for my Nana, and prepare the beds for winter. They lived near a river so the soil was just scrumptious for the roses and for making a yummy compost as well. Many of my grandfather’s roses were tea roses which are the type featured in the Rose Bouquet stamp set.

 

 

I stamped the largest bouquet several times on Arches cold press 140 lb watercolor paper to make a background. Then proceeded to paint the image with watercolor paints. I used Daniel Smith Quinacradone Coral, Mijello Mission Gold Permanent Rose and Daniel Smith Rose of Ultramarine. For the background I mixed two blues and that resulted in a desaturated blue. Next time I will use a dilution of Cobalt blue. Then I proceeded to add too much splatter – but we all need to learn right? Below is a You Tube tutorial on the Picket Fence Studios channel. Feel free to leave me questions there or over here on the blog.


 

 

 

Thank you for stopping by!

Susan
