Pretty Pink Roses

Earlier this week I mentioned I had been to a Garden show on Hilton Head Island and when you see today's piece you can see the influence. I was stunned by one garden that was simply roses, I have never seen so many roses abloom at one time. Drop dead gorgeous. I'm including some photos to share.

My Retro Cafe Art piece has lots of pink roses too. I printed two collage sheets Blue Bird Marie   and the Jolly Marie both by  Cassandra Van Curen   on canvas and was surprised how clear yet subtle it turned out. I layered the two prints and inserted pink lace between them. I also edged the piece in pink lace and attached a  flower button rose and a painted fleur d'isle as accents. Lots of dimension pearl hand drawn touches in pink and blue too.

Hope you will see some thing drop dead gorgeous this week.
take care,
Pretty Marie All in Pink
