Roses are Red...

Welcome to day two of Flourishes’ January Sneak Peeks featuring three of our newest sets! Today's sneak is all about love and a sweet little poem we all seemed to learn when we were kids! Only now, it's paired with a few beautiful botanicals that are just screaming to be colored up! Are you ready?

  RosesAreRedGraphic

Roses are Red by Marcella Hawley puts a new spin on that old, sweet poem! Roses are Red, Violets are Blue --- you finish the phrase with these mix and match sentiments!  It's so pretty!  


I took the smaller rose and violet stamp from the set and stamped it twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, creating a bit of a swag to accent this pretty poem.  I coloured up the flowers with Copics and then trimmed them out.  The poem has been cut out with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals Die and sponged in the center softly with Memento Love Letter ink.  


I've accented with some pretty organza roses and thin velvet ribbon.   And then I created my own "ruffles" using the Classic Edges Two Edgeabilties die, accenting those with little Kaiser pearls.  The paper is Flourishes Color Made Easy Poppy Collection.  And you might recognize this pretty palette from the card I did for the Love Letters Challenge the other day.  I think it's perfect for this set.
