More sketchy roses

I have more sketchy roses from Altenew today.
I have used watercolours to colour the rose and stems and honestly if your afraid to water colour don't be its so easy to it this way.
Simply heat emboss the image the  add a wash of watercolour and the colour will stay in the embossed sections creating your shading. 
Really really simple.
If you don't have watercolours you can use distress markers or the equivalent add some colour where you want the darker parts to be and either spritz with water from a mister bottle of pull the colour out with a water brush,
To add an extra touch use a sparkly or metallic embossing powder.
The sentiment is also Altenew and is stamped in the hero arts ombre ink.
