A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

It is such a long time since I have shown you some colouring that I thought it would be a great excuse to use my new Mini-Magnolia stamp. This isn’t quite an ATC as it is very slightly longer than it should be but I just loved the edge on my rectangle stamp I didn’t want to cut it short 🙂

Details: I’ve inked up the rectangle stamp with Colorbox chalks, teal and coral pink and then over stamped with the fabulous music script stamp from Artistic Stamper (OK, I ‘fess up it was another new buy from the Olympia show). The roses were made using papers coloured with inks and following the fabulous tutorial from Nancy at Scraps and Inks.

The image was coloured with a mix of Colorbox chalk inks and Koh-I-Noor watercolours.

I used Shimmerz Angel Wings paint to highlight the wings and 3D-glue to accent the bee body and the little rose.
