Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
So sorry I have been missing for a couple of days.
I have had lots of bits of house work to catch up
on, and a small amount of gardening, to also
catch up on.
My eldest sister in Wales the one that had the op
suddenly also asked me to make her this wedding
card, and box for her Grandson.
So I have just finished it.
On the card are some hand made roses I made
with the help of a wonderful blog friend Pamellia's
UTube Tutorial which you will find HERE.
I didn't have the Tim Holtz flower die she used
so I used my Spellbinders Rose Creation Die,
and you only need one size petal cut 6 times for
the whole rose.
This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
I also made the leaves I used on the flower spray
using a method John Lockwood showed on C&C.
I didn't see the program, but I heard some blog
friends talking about how he had done it, so I
had a go.
What I did was the paper I had wet, and
crumpled for the roses I rubbed DI in different
shades of green all over, and then cut out my
leaves from the same Rose Die.
I then added some Fired Brick DI to the top
Thank you so much for your visit, and the
wonderful comments you make.
It means a great deal to me, and I am so pleased
you like my work.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
