Painted Rose

I love the bright boldness of this rose over the softness of the stenciled background.

Instead of adding the ink colour to the embossing paste, I put the colour directly to the paper.  Then I added transparent embossing paste, removed the stencil, and sprinkled over clear embossing powder.  Then I heat set it. I like that you can get a more subtle and variant shading on the stencil this way. 

Here's a close up of the stencilled background ...
