Paint Fusion wild rose meets winter

hello everyone
here i am again with another of Shenna Douglas stamps its the wild rose stamp from paint fusion range and yes the sketchy church............ i couldnt settle tonight so had to play with the paints to relax and unwind
i composed the painting in the same way as the others stamped church then the flowers overlapping some petals that looked a bit messy ........  trying to figure out which petal belonged to which flower.... if you try this
 i would suggest you paint the one thats behind first completely  let it dry.... then paint the one in front i found that the best way

if you already have these will be thinking my stamp isn't that shape! it is honestly.......thinking out of the box lol..... all i did on the flowers was under paint petals in cream and made them pointed .....shetched in some leaves and stalks with pencil painted in the flowers with white added some shading with pale blue and green mixed together .blended it out with clean water  very lightly so you dont disturb too much fresh paint..... then i made a very thin light green wash and painted all over each petal  as i understand  the white flowers in real life turn green when fully grown . i do have  these plants in my garden but they are only babies and just budding up caun't wait for them to grow..........

so as you can see these stamps are very versatile Sheena has  brought us some beautiful stamps and paints  to play with i do hope you will give them ago its great fun and the nice thing about Acrylics is if you go wrong just paint over it and start again perfect ..........
 i dont have any other sketchy stamps so please excuse me they are on my list of things to add to collection.
thank you for popping by

Oh my goodness Linda, this is stunning!! Those flowers are the perfect frame for that gorgeous scene. I had to giggle when you said 'All I did was...', you make it sounds so easy :-)

Just saw this over on Sheena's blog. Wow aren't you clever!! I only have the canal plate, but I think the blackberries would work well with that.
