Created Byhand-Vintage Rose

Vintage Rose

Our goal today for the Created Byhand Challenge is to create something in pastel tones. I watercolored the rose image, masked it then stamped the background. I applied 3 layers of UTEE and cracked it a few times lightly. I then applied brown Stazon over the entire surface and wiped it off quickly. I added the corner embellishments as a final touch (thanks, Louise). I had originally trashed this project but decided to try and save it....glad I did!
Stamps from PSX and Stampin'Up.
