I used the following supplies on my roses:
- Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Die - Tattered Florals
- Recollections Card Stock
- Prima Clear Stamp - Music Notes
- Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain
- Shimmer Color Spray
- Ranger's Glossy Accents
Begin by cutting out three of one of the 6 petal flowers on the Tattered Florals die.
Cut one petal off of one flower, cut 2 petals off of another, and on the third, just cut between 2 petals to the center.
Ink the edges of the flowers with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and stamp the Music Notes stamp with Vintage Photo.
Spray the flowers with your choice of a shimmery color spray.
Be creative with this part! I made my own spray using Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Re-inker in Vintage Photo, Forever Red Perfect Pearls, and water! You can watch my video on making your own mist on my YouTube Channel.
Apply Glossy Accents to one petal, and adhere the flower to itself in a cone shape. You may have to hold it for a few seconds to help the glue set.
Use a pencil, or the like, to roll the petals on all the flowers.
Try varying the way in which you roll the petals - some tight and some loose.
From largest to smallest, stack and glue the flowers together.
You may have to snip 1/8 inch or so off of the ends in order for them to sit nicely together. Trimming the end off of the smallest piece is definitely essential.
Ta-dah! You have a beautiful rose!
Use a heavy does of Glossy Accents, hot glue, or even glue dots to adhere this beautiful creation to a card, scrapbook layout, or even some sort of home accent :)
I'd love to see the awesome roses you all come up with! Send photos :)
