Paper Roses


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

What a beauty Isobel – Roses by Crafty Sentiments Designs is!She’s been coloured up using Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.After my foray into a paper pieced Starburst Background I then went on to try another style that I wasn’t too sure I could handle!For this Herringbone Quilt effect I cut strips of a magazine freebie paper,although pretty enough I could never see me using it in a conventional way (if there’s such a thing in crafting!).Once all were adhered in place I cut it with a stitch edged die than ran it through an embossing folder that came with the papers,mounted onto white to distinguish it from the kraft card base.I stamped a greeting onto another strip of white card trimmed to fit the border embossing folder that also came as part of the set.A few white flat back pearls in varying sizes decorate the two top corners.I think the use of the white gives a lovely fresh contrast to the busyness of the background.
