Hello and Happy Saturday, everyone!
It’s time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge ! This month we are having a color challenge and Turquoise is the color of the month!
I made turquoise die cut roses for my card using Radiant Roses Layering dies by The Ton.
I started by die cutting the layers of the roses from some 200 lb watercolor paper. I colored the die cut pieces in Turquoise Color Burst. I colored the upper layers darker than the lower layer and let them all dry before I assembled the roses. I splattered turquoise ink on the leaves and buds.
For the background I did watercolor wash in turquoise on a watercolor paper panel and cut it with the Quilted A2 die (The Ton) to add subtle texture. I adhered the background panel on a white cardbase and arranged the roses on it using foam tape.
The sentiment is from Easy Expressions set by The Ton. To finish off I added a few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.
That was my turquoise rose card 🙂 ! Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our amazing guest Kailash!
Now it’s your turn to play along! Looking forward to seeing your floral beauties in the gallery!
Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!

Beautiful tones of blue to give wonderful dimension to these die cut roses TaeEun, and I love the washy background and the pretty clear enamel drops. x
WOW! Your turquoise roses are STUNNING, Tae Eun!! Love the beautiful shading to give them so much dimension. Perfect embellishments with the clear enamel dots and the two-toned sentiment banner. xx
Beautiful turquois blooms!!
I love these layered flower sets, and you just created a gorgeous card with this one.
Beautiful coloring of all the different layers on your roses and the subtle texture of the embossed background.
The clear enamel dots taking the different shades of turquoise are a really beautiful detail.
Beautiful card, teammate.
Stay healthy and safe.
So gorgeous, TaeEun. I never thought of using Bursts to color my flower dies but I will be doing that soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
Gorgeous and I love the beautiful watercolor look on the die cut pieces. So pretty and great job.
