I had myself a good old play yesterday and came up with a couple of creations I was actually quite proud of. This one is to say Thank You to all of you wonderful crafters out there in blogland, you keep me sane, make me smile and my job worthwhile – Thank YOU 😉
Ok so if you know me, you will know that Roses are my favourite flower, all types of them, although I have a particular penchant for yellow ones :). This, however, is and old English red rose, the type that smell amazing when you brush past them, I have several variety’s in my garden. I have made this using our Quillng flower dies, Rose Large and Rose Small, and also Blissful for the beautiful yellow centre of the flower. I have also used leaf 1 for the green leaves. having the Quilling dies, really does help you knock up one of these flowers in next to no time. With the help of the eBosser, this one took about 10 minutes from beginning to end, for something which such impact, I don’t think that’s half bad 🙂
I’ve created a faux picture frame effect by cutting aperture’s in different shades of red core’dinations card, the final top layer has been embossed using one of our new A4 embossing folders Floral Vine, I love this folder, when it’s sanded back I think it looks beautiful.
I’ll be demoing this on the Pick of the Day shows too 🙂 – see you there
