Rose for BBTB




The challenge on Bitten By The Bug this week was to use the rose cut from Indie Art. Be sure to check out all the design team's creations HERE. I used the oval card cut with wildcard at 6 1/4" as the base, lined the back in a spotty paper by making memories, and simply stuck the rose onto the lacy front. The rose itself was cut on blackout in the dark green colour of the stem, then in light green. I cut the head of the rose five times and popped each layer on with dimensional foam, then I put tiny drops of holly red liquid pearls all around the flower. This is one of those cards that I would never have made if I hadn't been on the design team, but now that I have made it, I quite like it for a wedding or anniversary card.

Your rose card is beautiful. Sorry to hear about your heat. Maybe if you worked faster and harder you would be warmer (just kidding - you do so much already). Anyway, love visiting here to see your works of heart.

Enfys your rose card is just BEAUTIFUL. Could you please tell me how you made the base of the card - I'd love to be able to bring a new technique to my scrappin friends in Washington State I've never seen this done.
Thank you so much - I so look forward to more. LOVE IT.
