Fabulous Roses

I was in the mood to color yesterday and I was inspired by a card made by Kim Teasdale on SplitCoastStampers. She watercolored her roses and they are exquisite. I was impressed with how she pulled the color of the petals into the leaves. So I gave it a try.

I stamped my image on Cryogen white paper from Cutcardstock.com with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then using my Copics:
Roses - R00, R02, R05, E19
Leaves - YG21, YG23, YG25, R02
Background - B000

So what do you think? I think it is quite stunning and am very pleased with the end result. This fabulous rose is from Sweet Impressions stamps.

Oh Sandy! This is gorgeous,. You've captured the red tint on the leaves perfectly. The roses are coloured beautfully too.
Brilliant job! (It looks a bit like stained glass)!
