TIO# 84 Let's Face It!
I made these paper roses back in March and yes Frankie, they are the same one's that I showed to you at the NEC lol, finally they have a home! I used a crealies die to cut out three of two different sized flowers in some Anna griffin paper. I then layered them up with a brad through the centre, and gave them a spritz with water. Then starting with the middle flower I scrunched it up towards the centre, and worked my way through all six layers like that. The flower was then left to dry out. They background is inked up with a mix of spun sugar, victorian velvet, milled lavender, dusty concorde and black soot. The Pre-Raphaelite Lady's face is from a theme plate by Non Sequitur (another Stampman bargain from Port Sunlight lol), stamped out with black soot, and coloured in using Lyra Polycolour pencils. I used an Anna Griffin flourish stamp in black soot, and again with a versamark pad, and brass sparkle embossing powder. Once the roses were dry I gave them a spray with the gold spray and sparkle, not only does this make them sparkle, but it also holds the flower in shape. I did have a piece of black ribbon to go through the top of my tag, but some how lol, it's disappeared. I know how can I loose things on this "o so tidy desk".
