Roses are blooming

Yes I have been painting just not posting! This is a painting I did using goache and black ink. I first drew my composition on watercolor paper. Then I painted with white goache or you can use tempera paint, in the areas I wanted to keep white. When this was completely dry I painted black ink over the entire painting. This I let dry overnight. Then I wet the paper and scrubbed what I could, of the ink off the white areas. I think it gave the painting a vintage look. I chose to paint the one rose red. I don't know if I am finished with this painting yet.
