Noline Coloring : Roses

Hi Friends!

Am playing along the daily marker 30 day challenge and today i find little time to do a watercolored Roses card.

A quick jump into my creations for today!

A novice attempt at No line coloring....I never attempted at a solid stamp for noline coloring. So tried today with this Deep Red Stamps -Rose blooms.

Stamped its using Antique linen, colored with fave Zig real brush pens and all highlights using Fabercastell polychromos.

And finally splatters using the Splatter brush of the colors which i used for coloring.

All time fave sentiment to finish off the card.

Few dew droplets as final touches.

Hope you like it!
