Welcome back! Today's Flowerful Friday is another sympathy card. Still working on that order and making prettier cards when I have the chance. This is an 1893 illustration from The New Guide to Rose Culture. I promised myself I'd color more of the digis I saved from Digital Two For Tuesday, so they'll be sprinkled in here and there. Remember, everything at DTFT is a freebie. You can find these roses here.
This image does have a vintage look, but I lightened it up with white and pretty aqua. You can see it's printed in sort of a teal-green. I like that. However, it was absolutely not my idea. It was my printer's idea. It does the strangest things when it needs a nozzle cleaning, and it needs a nozzle cleaning every time I use it. Well, I forgot... and imagine my surprise when it printed this color.
I printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and used Copics for coloring. Retired Just Rite sympathy sentiment in die cut rectangle. Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Frames.
I'll pop in with something cheerful on Monday. Staying focused... Have a happy day!
