Traced and inked flower

 Sharing some good news first, today my blog is 3 months old, yipee...the first post I put up on was 14 Feb,  yesterday morning(I live in Macau, so timings are very different) I won a blog hop at STAMPlorations, and also yesterday night my card was chosen as HM at CASology... *doing a happy dance*

This card is an experiment, and I like how it came out, and thought of sharing it.
This rose is inspired from my PJ's, no kidding! I know it sounds crazy, but I went on with my intuition and made it anyway.
Firstly, I used a baking sheet to trace the rose from my PJ, and then I flipped the traced sheet and put it on a white card stock and retraced it. When you do this, the pencil lead will get transferred from the sheet to the card stock.
After that I had inked the rose with 3 different shades of pink. For the leaves I chose yellow and 2 different shades of green.
To finish off, I stamped the sentiment and inked the bottom with my hand made stencil for another card. Tadaaa.... its done. It was fun doing it because I had no clue if it would work, I was ready to trash it if it didn't work. 

Behind the scenes:

The inspired picture on my PJ!

Traced it on to the baking sheet.

Ready to transfer it to the card.

After transferring on card, its bit faded but its perfect to outline with your own choice of colors.
