A Rose by any other name....

Or in any other color! It is Sketch time again at Bombshell stamps, and Captain Kathi has done it again! She has come up with a wonderful sketch for us to play with.

I used Rose's Portrait, and colored her in a different color scheme than usual. I wanted to go lighter than the typical bright colors. More of a pale, soft scheme. I started with the papers - which I think are Websters pages. And then chose the colors.
I started coloring with the rose. It is E40, 41, 93 and 95. with the YG93, 91, 95 and 97 for the leaves.  I then colored the skin. I went with R0000, 00, E40 and 41 - working for more of an antique-y porcelain doll look. The earring, eyes and her and scarf are BG70, 72, 75 and 78. Her hair is Warm Greys.

The flowers look a little strange, but in person are really really close to the actual cardstock.  I am so bummed that the picture doesn't show it! SIGH.

Head on over to the Bombshell stamp blog  and check out what some of the other ladies have created for you as inspiration. Then you should join in and try for a chance to win some free stamps!!! Seriously. Fun, easy, and free. Whoa!

Ok... check back tomorrow and I will have another Sassy creation for you to keep you warm - or cold as the case may be.
