Roses

this is for Selma's "Blast from the Past" challenge at Stamp TV. This week it's the "Crayon Resist" technique. 
This technique is a challenge for me...I can never seem to get the colors right...made about a dozen of these roses and this is the best one I came up with...the pink background is waaaaay too dark for what I was wanting it to look like....oh well...it is what it is !! thank goodness its a random pick challenge...so there's still hope ...   (-:

Details:
Stamp: GKD's "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie
Paper: K&C, GKD's  Spruce, Pink
Ink: Stazon Cherry, Black and Vivid's TeaRose, Memento Rose
Embellishment: stash ribbon, adhesive pink pearls, nestie
Technique: Crayon Resist, matting raised on dimensionals

Have a blessed day!

Linda those roses are lovely. They remind me of the pink roses my Grandmother had in front of her house. Thanks for bringing that memory to mind today.

I do like how the roses came out, and the rest of the card too! I must agree, however that the pink is a bit dark behind the roses :P But hey, who wouldn't L-O-V-E this card anyway?!?
