For my project today I combined the lovely Rose Silhouette image with punched and die cut roses and foliage.  I loved how the paper rose mimics the silhouette image.

Rose Silhouette

I used a Regal Rose and Old Olive marker to apply color directly on the stamp, spritzed with a little water and stamped on white cardstock. I used a small wet brush to go over each section of flower and leaf to smooth out and fill in the color of the image.

I used a round Nestabilities die to cut the image layer into a circle and mounted over a round scalloped layer. I attached this to an all white base layer because I wanted the image, flower and foliage to be the main focus.

I used the McGill rose punches and Spellbinder foliage dies to create the flower spray.  I added sprigs of Martha Stewart Branch punch to fill in and soften the spray. KC Rose Silhouette 1 left

I like how pretty the image and dimensional flower look together.  I hope to create more projects like this in the future.

My mother was a florist so when I think of Mother’s Day I think of flowers. Check on the links below if you would like to see more of the floral images Rubbernecker has available.
