I layered Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and a page from the Recollections series. The Mellow Moss background was stamped with Canvas in Sahara Sand, then sponged with Cranberry Crisp and Bravo Burgundy. The centers of the roses are watercolored with So Saffron and More Mustard.
I stamped the smaller rose in the corner of a piece of vanilla. Then I cut out two more roses and layered them on top using dimensionals. Leaves and the bud were stamped onto the vanilla sheet. The round leaves in between the roses were stamped seperately, cut out, then inserted into the "garland." After it was all put together, I cut the entire garland out and adhered it onto the piece of Recollections paper.
The edges of the garland are sponged with Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke. The petals and leaves are highlighted with Pearl-Ex -- too bad you can't see it!
