Patchwork Purple Rose

5:22 PM Posted In , , Edit This 4 Comments »

It looks like I'm hopelessly hooked on making these roses, doesn't it?

I made this purple rose several weeks ago from some plain white cardstock and painted it with some Twinkling H20's on a stamping sponge. I "streaked" the sponge across the rose for a little different effect.

I learned a great new technique called "Patchwork" from Technique Junkies, so I borke out my Distress Inks and made a few backgrounds. Then, I dug through the rose stash to see what would match. Since the rose was already purple/white striped, I thought adding some navy ink with a stamping sponge would make a great coordinated embellishment.

The silk leaves are from my leaf assortment, the fern punch is Martha Stewart, and the butterfly is a purchase from a local mill ends fabric store. Corner punch is from Marvy.

Thanks for looking!

Your cards are always so great. I'd love to have your blog sent to my email. Is there a way to have that done? I've searched for a sign-up similar to some others I receive, but can't find it.
