It's been very hot and dry here, the worst drought that I can recall. But last night the skies opened up and we received a heavy down pour for an hour. I've been worried about the trees that are stressed and dying, so I was so happy that the rain will gave them some relief. Most homeowners in our area don't seem to realize that young(ish) trees need water to survive.
My card today features the beautiful Crackling Rose stamp by Chocolate Baroque. After seeing many flower & rose designs at Miranda's blog, I could no longer resist and ended up buying this one.
I used Distress Inks and water in the background and when dry stamped the Crackle Rose with Memento ink. After colouring the Rose with Prisma pencils I added some paint using a stencil around the border.
The background was much larger, but I wasn't happy with how it turned out, too much pink for me I suppose. But I spent a lot of relaxing time colouring so I trimmed a lot of the background away. It looks better but still a lot of pink !
Well that's all for today, have a wonderful weekend.
