Sweet Stamps Challenge- Roses

It's another fun challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Roses.
 Here is a sneak peak at one of the techniques for the Oct Technique Junkies Newsletter- Painted Burlap. I used a SweetCuts die to cut out the butterfly die, and painted it using Smoosh- so it is shimmery IRL. I used ink from the Spots and watercolored the image. The pin is from Pinque Peacock. I colored the Copics on the Rhinestones to colorize them.

Here are the Sweet Stamps supplies I used:

I hope you will join in the challenge! Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by so everyone has a chance to win!
