If you have followed my blog for a while, you might have noticed that one idea usually leads me to the next idea. It is just the way my mind works.
(If only I had time to craft all the ideas I come up with :)
Anyway...this is where the red, white, and black card posted yesterday led me...
This beautiful patterned paper is actually cream and black.
I was thinking that purple would be a great color to pair with it.
Although, once I added the purple roses and green leaves the colors looked a little Halloweenish to me...LOL
Here are a close up of the roses.
I used Penny Duncan's rose cut file for this one. (You can find the files on Penny's site along with a tutorial. Go to the flower tutorial tab under her header and scroll down to the roses)
I cut 3 roses in a large size then cut one medium and one small.
For the large roses I use all 5 of the petal shapes. For the medium rose, I only use 4 petal shapes. For the next two small rose buds, I use 3 petals for one and 2 petals for the next.
I add my own leaves and calyx.
