R is for Rose

Next letter up in The Craft Barn's dictionary challenge is R.  The background was made by scraping on paint with a card and then stenciling layers over the top. I used crackle paste through a stencil for the rose and painted it when dry.  The colours and the roses remind me of my grandmother and a scarf she had.  xxx

Materials used:
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint: snowflake, blue oyster, mermaid, bora bora, 
china, limelight, hyde park, sherbert, orchid, bougainvillea
Tando stencil: leaves
The Crafters Workshop stencil: cherry blossoms
Clarity stencil: double rose, trellis
DecoArt crackle paste
