Sending Roses (Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society)

Hi everyone!
Welcome back to another blog post. 

Have you ever seen an orange rose? 
I'm lucky enough to have a bunch of gorgeous rose varieties outside my bedroom window at my home, and every time they bloom the air smells amazing!
The greatest thing about the orange rose is that it's not totally orange - there's a yellow tinge to the tops of the leaves which is gorgeous and it really bring out that depth of the colours. 

Firstly, I used Nuvo markers to colour this gorgeous Technique Tuesday Sending Roses stamp. You may notice that the leaves are not fully coloured - I saw someone else leaving some white space on their leaves in a similar way and I liked it. 
Sometimes I'll go through and colour a bunch of images and just get something done and have some backup images, and later I'll come back to see what I can do to use the image.
I had coloured this rose while volunteering at a fundraising stall with a friend. It was fun to get out of my own crafting space, sit around with a bunch of people, socialize and craft while helping our community out. 

I wanted to work with a very light background to compliment this image. I just received some Blending Brushes from the Stamp Market and I had a go at testing them out. I've always used a different sponge for each Distress Ink colour, so it was a little daunting to use one brush for multiple greens - but it works pretty well!

I used the Wonky Triangles Stencil from Catherine Pooler for the background, just using some light green colours. I also added some darker green speckles once that was finished.
I then took Simon Says Stamp's Friendship Bloom stamp and embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder. 

Finally I placed my rose onto the card stock, and decided to use some Iridescent Bubbles from Studio Katia around the image. I looove these gorgeous little bubbles with their amazing colour. 

That's it for today everyone! I hope you like this. Do you use blending brushes - and if so, are they from a company, or makeup brushes? Do you craft anywhere else than from your usual desk?

Until next time,

Shana xx
