Romance & Roses

Good morning my crafty friends! This month I have been invited to join in the Tattered Lace dies challenge, what fun. here is the link.

To make this heart I used the Poppy die and leaf from the Lavish blooms collection, the tumbling vine, double hearts pick and the Marguerite small flower, and I have included a pic so you can see the  dies I have used.

I have used a great technique to make the roses and I have included a short video tutorial to show you how they were made.

 If you don't fancy watching and listening to me, then here are the instructions: Cut 3 large flowers, cut into all three to make a rose, these must be cut from mulberry paper, stick all the layers together, spritz with ink, water or mica, whatever takes your fancy, scrunch up the petals while the flower is wet, dry overnight, distress the edges and place on your design.

Well enough chat, here are the pics!

I joined two of the heart picks together to make the butterfly's, the postcard is from the shabby sweet embellishment cd, the postcard was from the embellishment attic collection. The I love you stamp is part of the ditzy stamp collection.

Thank you for stopping by, and don't forget to join in the challenge! xxx
