Hi! This card was made for today's Sketch Challenge.
Speedy the Cat and I are still awake at 1:15AM...Why? Because one of the SSS, (Semi-Siamese Siblings), knocked over a vase of silk gold tipped roses. The vase shattered, and I bolted out of bed like someone had just announced, "Attention Hobby Lobby customers. All Stamping Items are 75% off for the next 15 minutes!" LOL!
Needless to say, I'm wide awake now! So, I decided to stamp! The Rose was stamped onto watercolor paper with VersaMark and embossed in Gold. I colored in the leaves and rose with SU! markers and used an aqua painter to blend.
The far background was run through the Cuttlebug and then I rubbed a Mellow Moss pad on the embossed areas.

I truly love the last few cards where you have done the embossed main image and then the watercoloring. Your cards stand out on the page and I have even trained my husband to spot your cards on the screen each night. I have admired your work from afar for a year or so and I am so inspired. Some day I will get my own gallery up thanks to the great ideas I see in your artwork. Please keep sharing!
