Tina...great job. They are beautiful and I love the background. Looks like marble. Gorgeous. 
I thought I'd missed something when I saw all your water drops....even pulled out the template again!!   :2funny:
Yours look great, and the extra ones are look like they belong there.

Tina, you have made a beautiful painting.  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Everything is all technically perfect. Just the center of the main rose is a little bit off. It needs to be a bit higher with a few more more petals below it and remove some of the petals above it - Too many petals at the top end. Other than that very well done  O0 (I did change the center in the    demo)

Of course there was a story...lol...you will note some odd shapes of petals and leaves...that's because after using dish detergent, some kind of reaction occurred with the pencil which made all the colors bleed over each outline  line so I had to do some ad-libbing I'm afraid.  But for better or worse, here it is..

Mary, I hope to create disasters like yours!  You're in for some real giggles and chuckles as I start painting again. Dennis already has the aspirin out...and Nolan...well he's crying in his beer.   :whistle:   :2funny:

Well done on your modified rose, Tina.  It's beautiful!   :congrats:

Mary, nice work!  Your roses are beautiful.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Just one thing though, I would make the stems more green and add more shadow.
Wait 'til Dennis comes along though.
