This weeks challenge was sneak peeks of the new releases from Hero Arts. Lisa Spangler did several new cards using a rose http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/2009/08/05/watch-it-wednesday-sneak-peek-3/ which were beautiful! I was lucky that the new rose was available at the local Archiver's and I was able to pick it up and try some of the techniques she used.
The technique I had seen Jennifer and Lisa use before is coloring on kraft cardstock after stamping. I have been wanting to try this for awhile. I stamped the outline using versamark on green cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.
Then I colored in using watercolor pencils on the green cardstock. I really like the effect it reminds me of the cloisenne pieces I saw in China when we visited.
