Using leftover roses

If you saw my card yesterday (you can check it out HERE), you might have wondered if I had inked up the entire background stamp, and created a whole panel? The answer is yes, and here's the rest of that panel!
I used the Roses All Over background stamp from My Favorite Things, white embossed onto watercolour paper and then painted with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts (which I mounted on my acrylic block on a curve to match the cut of the stamped panel, stamped in Versafine black ink and clear embossed), and then added some sequins from Simon Says Stamp.

I'll be sharing this card at two challenges - My Favorite Things "Card Design Superstar", and the  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge Stamptember blog hop - Stamp it.
 Thanks for visiting :)
