' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Roses are red(ish)

Roses are red(ish)

I was inspired by the Craft Room challenge to pull out my photo realistic Roses stamp (Impression Obsession) and team it up with a rose I made recently with embossing powders in a WOW mould.
I tried to get green leaves and pink petals and it worked well enough so I am quite pleased with the result. My favourite embellishments are the ones I have made myself and with this mould I am able to make endless variations of roses.

The colour scheme suggested itself from the choice of the paper pad I used (a VERY old pad from Making Memories) and the roses of course!
I used a die-cut tag (also Impression Obsession) and a flourish I got from a magazine recently which I HAD to try...
I am also entering the following challenges: Pan Pastel UK (colour palette), The Artistic Stamper (in the garden), Country View crafts (Nature's glories) and Ladybug Crafts (favourite embellishment)
