I used the May colors & the sketch, plus have repeated flowers. I added green leaves - don't hold it against me! It was a bit difficult for me to have the largest flower at the top and the small ones at bottom - but I went with it!!
I typically do my color layering using a stamping tool and stamp first on printer paper for lining up. I align the negative and pop my die cut flowers into the negative for stamping. I did a bunch of flowers in this color combo (plus others), some for Robyn and some for other projects. For some reason I had trouble getting the fifth layer on the medium flower so I ended up stamping it twice into what looks like a full circle - didn't really mind this look and stamped all of them this way!! Here's a photo of the inks I used - the My Monthly Hero kit inks didn't have color names, sorry! Interesting how differently the inks combined on cream vs white.
I ordered the rosy set last year to take to my friend Heather in Ireland. While I was there I stamped a few roses to bring home. You can see cards I made with them last year here, here & here, if desired. Loved the roses so much I finally ordered the set with matching dies (plus other stuff....no surprise) not long into the pandemic. Was delighted with the service from Mendi - very timely despite the pandemic! Thanks Mendi!
I might share a couple of the cards I made with a blue color combo - not a common rose color but it matched the patterned paper I was using!! Will try to do that later this week.... Because - hey, this is a celebration (Kath was the 3000th participant) and a bit of a blog hop! Use the links above to go to the "before and after me" in the hop. And be sure to check out The Card Chain Challenge blog from June 2nd-28th for some fun games and prizes. Hope you can play along and also note, the June sign-up is on until June 6th.
Thanks for stopping and have a crafty June!!
