Watercolour Roses for Love to Craft Challenge #77 for November/December 2023

I'm a little late posting tonight as work has just been crazy!
Anyway, for challenge #77 for November/December 2023 of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog I decided to do some watercolouring with a new stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp Stamptember.

Here is my card for this month:

I have stamped the roses from Altenew STAMPtember Exclusive Rose Reverie Stamps and Dies on to watercolour card and then coloured with the following Distress pens:
  • roses - spun sugar, worn lipstick, picked raspberry, shaded lilac, carved pumpkin
  • leaves - mowed lawn, lucky clover
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce from Kit and Clowder and her Kit and Clowder Monthly Colouring Classes.

I have die cut the coloured image with the dies that came with the stamps and then adhered on to a Kraft square card from Envelope Solutions. I then stamped the sentiment from the same set with Elderberry Memento ink.

Here is a close up of the colouring after die cutting:
