Water color roses

Good Afternoon Everyone,                                                                                                                             
I finally had time to play with this reinker technique, water color roses, that many people had been doing.

 This first card here I colored with Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. I dyed the Organza Ribbon mixing Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum.  Love the result!  The leaves were hand cut and embossed with piecing tool.
  
 This next one here I used Really Rust and So Saffron.  Again, I dyed the ribbon.
  

  
 This last one here is my favorite.  I used Tempting Turquoise.  I dyed the Taffeta  Ribbon by pressing the  ribbon right on the ink pad.  Then I ran the ribbon through the paper towel.
  

 I hope you've enjoyed today post.

Have a nice day!

Hugs,

Helen
