New flower - Beautiful Rose made from Cardstock - Definitely my favourite to date!

TO ENTER MY BLOG CANDY PLEASE PRESS THE LINK AT THE TOP RIGHT OF MY BLOG OR SCROLL DOWN FURTHER TO PREVIOUS POST

I really wish the photo showed how it truly looks....its so much prettier in real life 


Oh my giddy aunt you lot, I was so excited to show you all this flower that I only made one before taking loads of "Strike a pose" photos and running on here to show you it!  But boy did I make that little rose work for its water!  Poor thing is exhausted from its photo shoot!!  "Wired to the moon as per usual"....I hear you sigh!

Lookie, lookie........isnt she purdy (which evidently is my maiden name by the way....not Lookie you numpties....Purdy!).  I made this using the Spellbinders Rose Creation die, cutting just one of the middle sized flower cuts.  This was made using 5 of the same sized flower and then one more to make the leaves.  The die actually does have leaves you can cut.....but I didnt have any to hand so I just used the extra flower I had sitting and used my new distress ink (Thanks Debbi xx) to colour the cardstock.

All the adornments I just literally threw together to make the photo a bit more pretty.  I dont actually own the Tim Holtz Tattered Clock or the Flourishes dies but my very dear friend Maddy who is Izzwizz Creations here in Blogland very kindly cut me some. Thank you so much my friend.  I know!!  There are actually Tim Holtz dies that I do not possess!  Go figure.  I bought the wee crystal sprays on ebay and the other wee flowers I was mucking about with earlier and came up with these.  I think they look like wee cherry blossoms, dont you think?  I will perfect these as they arent perfect but I think I rather like these too.

Sadly the photos do not do this beautiful little rose any justice whatsoever......yet Im making you look at them anyway, lol!    So here are the photos.......

300gsm cream linen cardstock.  Ohhhh it would look gorgeous with some stickles painted on or some glossy accent rain drops.....ohhhhh....I wanna put rain drops on it!!


ADDED PHOTO!
Through the magic of post editing.....the flower with rain droplets.....glossy accents 



Used Crushed Velvet Distress Ink along the edges of the cream cardstock


The Rose itself has 5 layers and then one layer for the leaves


The Crystal Spray I bought from Ebay ....contact me if you want the link


Side profile.....the flower has great dimension


These are the wee cherry blossoms I made.....my first attempt.  They need perfected a bit.  The two outside ones are cream paper using a 5 petal flower punch. The centre flower is cream cardstock using the Tim Holtz Tattered flowers die.  I prefer the outside ones myself.

This is most definitely without a doubt my most favourite paper/cardstock flower to date.  I say that now, but goodness knows what I will come up with next.  Regardless, its my favourite for now.  AND....no doubt these roses will be found in the 6 Blog Candies I am giving away....so this is a little sneak peek of one little goodie 6 lucky people will be receiving. Thats it from me for another wee while.  Sorry its photos of only one flower.  But as I said, I was so excited about it I had to get it on here asap!  Im an excitable kinda child really......you'd never guess, would you?? lol.

Ohhhhh....not too many more sleeps now until Santa comes!!  Yippeeeee!!

Toodles Noodles,

Loops xx

EDIT - If you want a tutorial, let me know below.  But it wont be done until after Christmas.  Its pretty similar to my other wee paper rose tutorial but slightly different so if you want a tutorial, just say, its no problem. Oh aye....I used hot glue to adhere the rose together.  Toodles.  Lee  xx
