I just love an anything goes challenge- and we have one for you this fortnight at Color Me Creative and it's sponsored by Digi Stamps 4 Joy. My CAS card uses their digi, Rose trio. I love this one, but it's not where I started!
Using Google images, I could look through so many photos of roses for inspiration. I was drawn to the cream colored roses with the bright pink tips. I thought they would create some visual interest for my coloring.
bud next and used my Y0000. Then I wondered what a more traditional pink flower would look like, so I colored the last rose. I was undecided about which kind of rose I liked best, so I colored one entire image in pink-tipped and the other just pink.
RV25 is my deepest color, and I didn't really have any pink paper in my collection that enhanced the image, nor did I have the right patterned paper to use for the tipped flowers. You know how that goes . . . The white, gray and black combination made the pink stand out, and created a gorgeous CAS card. I'll save the other colored roses for another time!
