(2012 c41) Use 1 Stamp for Focal and Background GinaK Designs

The  rose stamp is from A Year of Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger.  You can find the stamp set at GinaK Designs at StampTV.
The sentiment is from Friendship's Garden by Asela Hopkins also at GKD.

I started by stamping the rose with a light pink  on the pink background paper, then I took cherry red & stamped the same rose on the yellow background.  I stamped the focal rose 3 times on watercolor paper in red & then colored with 3 shades of red with Copic Markers.  Then I cut out sections of petals and curled them & added dimensional glue to layer on top of each other.  I also gave the leaves dimension by rubbing the back side with a large tipped embossing tool. (this is how I "curled" the rose petals too)
