To a Wild Rose for Paper Players 484

Day 6 of a four week lockdown passed quite slowly today, despite the gorgeous autumn weather. I had a hankering to do some water colouring. For inspiration, I turned to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at The Paper Players.

I've played the right-hand column: Patterned paper, birthday and flowers. I've also used pink and die cut.

To a Wild Rose is a great set because you can use just the outlines, as I have here, to colour as desired or you can use the rest of the three-step stamps to build up the colour through stamping alone.

I've gold embossed the outline and used ink and aqua painter to colour the flowers and leaves.

The DSP is from the Sale-abation set, Golden Honey, which retired yesterday. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.
