Some Like It Hot Rose Bouquet
by Anne Thompson

Some Like It Hot is the name of this month's Memory Box Challenge with a focus on red, orange, and yellow.  You can find the information so you can participate here.  I decided to play along, using the Rose Bouquet stamp and die and some Distress Inks.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, and Ripe Persimmon.  I used the smoosh technique-- I just smooshed some of each color onto the watercolor paper and spritzed with water.  I reused a gold shimmer mist bottle so there is some sheen to the dried inks.

I stamped the Rose Bouquet on the inked paper using VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink.

I took the outline die and placed it over the image and ran it through my die cutting machine.

 I placed the die cut on top of a yellow notecard and aligned the cut edges with the top folded edge and the right edge.

I snipped off the pieces that hung over the edges of the notecard.  Then I used a waterbrush and Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed Distress Inks to fill in the unpainted leaves.

To finish the card I added a crisp orange satin ribbon tied in a simple bow.
