I used the beautiful new Old Tea Rose stamp set for this card.  I first stamped my image on a piece of printer paper and fussy cut all along the image to make a mask.  I then stamped my rose again on my Flourishes Classic White cardstock then put the mask on top and stamped the script background from Sweet Nature, then I pulled the mask off and colored my rose.  I took my Tim Holtz distress inks and smeared the pads on my craft mat and added some water with a paint brush and flicked it all over my image.
