PanPastel - Roses are a Girls Best Friend Inspiration

This is my inspiration piece for the Roses are a Girls Best Friend Challenge over on the PanPastel Challenge blog.  Yes I've been lucky enough to have been given another chance as a Guest Designer!

You still have time to enter - pop over HERE to take a look at the DT inspiration and where you can add your project.

At first glance my piece may not looked finished, in fact, I was going to add a With Love sentiment and make it into a card but I like it so much I'm going to frame it and hang it on the wall!

I must apologise for the photos as they look different colours - the weather and light kept changing which seems to have played havoc with the colours.

Below are pictures I took as I worked which shows how I came to the finished piece.

This is my final week as PanPastel Guest Designer and I would like to thank Nikky Hall and the Design Team for making me feel so at home.  I've thoroughly enjoyed it.

I used Martha Stewart Botanical Silk screen kit.

I masked off the rose to colour the background and add the Raindrop stamp from Designs by Ryn.

Hope you like the finished piece as much as I do. I love to see your comments and appreciate each and everyone.
