Thinking Of You Card Using Brutus Monroe "Rose Garden" Stamp!

Hello lovelies!I'm back this week with a thoughtful card using Brutus Monroe's "Rose Garden" stamp! Roses have a special meaning to me so I had to pick this one up!

I removed the stencil and splattered some water over it with a paintbrush, cleaning up any excess water with a paper towel. I masked off the white portion of my panel with...
