Framed yellow rose...

I decided to try my hand, once again, at using water color pencils to color another rose image. I first stamped the image with very light ink onto water color paper, and then proceeded to color it, using the pencils and my water brush.

After my coloring was done, I fussy-cut some of the leaves and the bud so they could extend outside the frame. This particular frame was pre-made and given to me along with a whole stack of similar frames. I've had them in my stash for a while, so it felt good to use at least one of them!

I still need lots of practice using water color pencils, but it was fun to give it a go.

As a final touch I added some clear Nuvo drops.

I matted the inside panel and stamped a birthday verse.

A few minutes ago, while I was typing this, we had a tornado warning on TV. It was for three or four counties near us. In fact, a couple of the counties border ours. Because tornadoes are usually short-lived and don't travel terribly far once they hit the ground, I don't think we have to worry.  We'll keep our eye on the weather, though! It seems awfully early in the season for tornadoes. I guess it might be a long summer.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Chery, this is beautiful! I am a bit afraid of watercoloring! Guess I need to jump on that train someday soon! Thanks for sharing!

Great job on the coloring, Cheryl - and the cutting, too! Not to mention using up something that's been around for awhile:) I do know that feeling of finally putting something on a card, even if it's only one of ten! Gosh, I didn't even realize there was a tornado watch around here last night!

I am not good at water color either, in fact I am not even mediocre but I enjoy playing around with it. I think the rose is beautiful and then the nuvo dots is the perfect touch.
