Create with a Touch of Watercolor

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a quick post about this hidden gem...

Happy Birthday 
English Rose by Clearly Besotted

If you love the color-layering look, but find the process is too tedious or intimidating. 
Well, look no further. This English Rose is SO easy to line up and you can add as much colors as you want. Because it is so easy to line up, I got creative with the background. 

Happy Birthday

Yeah, the background has a touch of watercolors!
When you have watercolor background like this, do make sure you use a medium-high grade of watercolor paper (Bristol Paper was used in this). All you need to do is prepare the paper first and make sure it is dry for stamping. The rest is all up to you.

I love the look of this and will definitely create my own watercolor backdrop!
Happy birthday
Have yourself a beautiful day!

Beautiful... love the color wash in the background, and the navy on pink roses are lovely; a color combination I would not have thought of. TFS!

Your purple roses against your blue background is stunning. The roses look so lovely...perhaps it's the contrast. Lovely.
