Newton's Nook Designs April Release- Love Grows

Hi!  It's time for another Newton's Nook Designs release!  This one is super cute- I love the sets this month!  Today we are showcasing the Love Grows set- it's a mini set full of beautiful roses and pretty Mother's Day sentiments.  Here is what I made:

Newton's Nook Designs Mother's Day Card 1- Tessa Wise

The line drawn roses were just begging me to watercolor them!  Hee!  I stamped the larger roses onto watercolor paper with Versamark and embossed them with white powder.  I used my Distress markers to color them in a little and then blended with my aqua pen.  I had so much fun painting them!  Once they were dry, I fussy cut around them.

While my roses were drying, I created my card base.  I used watercolor paper as my base and rounded the bottom right corner.  I stamped the vines with gold Delacata ink and added a couple of embossed small roses as well.  I watercolored the small roses in the same way I had the large.  Next I added a splattering of gold mist.

Once everything was dry, I added the large roses to the corner and stamped the sentiment in black Versafine ink.  This one was so fun!
