Manhattan Embossed Flower 2

Hi there! I'm still enjoying this technique and wanted to share the 2nd flower that I created. I still need to "leave it alone" after I've dabbed my reinkers on there, but I don't and end up with a flower that doesn't quite have the variation of colour I've been looking for. I guess that means I'll just have to try my hand at a few more!!
This card used Whisper White, Gable Green, Pink Pirouette Cardstock. Kind of an odd colour combination, but somehow I felt it worked!! :-)

I stamped the sentiment with StazOn black and inked the edges of the white scalloped circle with Pink Pirouette and then Pixie Pink, just to give it some definition. The rose is done using Patty Bennett's watercolour technique, see her link on the side bar. The Ribbon and Bling are from my stash, I'm not sure of the make or brand, sorry! :-) The Little Leaves & Top Note die were cut using the Big Shot, something I really seem to be enjoying more and more every day. The Embossing Folder used was Swiss Dot.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back tomorrow, I've got a Vintage style card using Asian Artistry. Yes, Vintage!! Not what I had expected to be making when I sat down at the table tonight, but somehow I ended up with vintage. Just trying to get a good photo of it, I'll be back tomorrow morning with the picture.
Have a great evening!!
