a rose is a rose

I used watercolor crayons and an aqua brush to color in this stamped image. Make sure you use StazOn if you're using watercolor crayons or pencils.  The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, after distressing it with a couple of Distress Ink pads.  I also used a Spellbinders oval scallop die to cut out the center of the paper.  Lastly, I distressed the edges of the paper before adhering it to black cardstock. 
 I "fussy" cut out the rose from watercolor paper and pop dotted it in the center.  I used tall pop dots to make the rose really stand out on the black background.
