Sunday Stampers Grunge rose





Hi
This weeks SS challenge theme is roses. After seeing the gorgeous roses made by Hels and Linda and helped byWendy Vecchis brilliant tutorial I decided to have a go. I didn't appear to have the right size six sided flower but then found an Autumn leaves one that served the purpose. I coloured my rose with aged mahogony and sprayed it with gold shimmer mist - though after I thought copper might have been better. The rose sat alone for a couple of days as I couldn't think what to use it for and I was running out of time for the SS deadline. I would have like to put in on a box lid but thay would have taken ages, instead I made a card with the sweet image of Maribel from Stempelglade stamped on to glossy and 'water' coloured with distress inks. The frame 'Home Accents' I cut on my Cricut using BG Kraft and then inked a little with aged mahogany and brushed cordroy. the leaves were die cut too. The striped background was Cosmo Cricket and the pink one, My minds eye. When I took this photo my OH grabbed his camera and took one too -I think he was impressed!! Doesn''t happen too often these days! I am really pleased with the way this card turned out hope you like it too xx
