The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week is “Fantastic Florals” – perfect for learning how to make roses. It wasn’t too long ago when I read a tutorial on making roses on Jennie’s Live the Dream blog. I needed an excuse so I could experiment with the technique and the challenge is well timed. What did I learn?, First, that it’s not too hard to make pretty roses and it’s fun.
I decided to make some cards for two friends I don’t see very often. Here are the cards below.
I tried to stencil a rose background with Distress Spun Sugar stain that I blotted on the top of the stencil. Error. The stain is too thin so it soaks under the stencil and just made a large pink blob. The good news is that I used the stain on top of the stencil to make the background below. That worked very nicely on watercolor paper.
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz “Simple Saying” Stamps.
