Loved this design as my favorite flower is roses. I took and had the design copied onto watercolor paper which was a little more difficult than I anticipated, since the design wanted to smudge when you touched it...Guess the ink didn't dry well on the watercolor paper, so trying to figure out how to 'set' the ink so it wouldn't smudge, I thought I'd try my iron.......that seemed to work for me.....then it was on to watercoloring! I used three layers of pink on the roses and two to three on the leaves...I wanted some leaves to appear lighter.....background is a wash of light blue! I used a drop of acrylic paint of each color and added water until I got the desired shade that I wanted. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out......even though I had a hard time with having the design put on the watercolor paper.
