Beauty Blooms

     Hi stamping friends!  Today's card is for another Flourishes' challenge to CASE one of their design team members.  This week it is Tosha Leyendekker.  I've been a fan of Tosha's artwork long before she joined Flourishes.  She is one gifted artist!
     I don't have the long die Tosha used so I cut in the paper making the rose flush with the patterned paper.  The tea rose is colored with chalks then sprayed with a fixative to prevent smears.
    The colored vellum matches the paper.  You really need Stazon ink on vellum.  It will dry.  The sparkler is Webster's Pages and the paper is London Market by Pink Paislee.
    Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!
