Roses, Roses everywhere

You will see I am ROSE crazy!!

These roses have been made from, Wendy Vechi's, Studio 490 rubber stamps.  This rose was designed by Tim Holtz.

I taught myself how to put roses on long stems
and now have bouquets all over my home....They always stay fresh!

You don't even know how many roses are in this wreath
I know I don't

How about a custom Wedding Bouquet

                                Or a pretty nosegay

    and a Merry Christmas bouquet

Festive Friday CHIRSTMAS CARD blog hop #9

You should have just hopped her from Chris Hurley's blog
The technique I used here combines both jewelry and card making techniques.
I stamped the original design on card stock both kraft and a white. I chose the area I wanted to focus on and rubber stamped it on a piece of Ecoartboard. Both were colored in with Faber Castel water color pencils. The art board was covered with a coating from an embossing pad. For the white card I used Tsukineko and for the Kraft colored card I used a stained versamark pad.
When the embossing ink was still wet I covered the boards with Ultra thick embossing powder (UTEE)
and heated it. I did this process several times to make a thicker and smoother glaze.
The papers I used were embosses Bazzil 8 1/2" x 11" sheets.
This gorgeous stamp is called "Moon Party" from Viva Las Vegastamps! They also carry the Ecoartboard, embossing stamp pad by Tsukineko, and High Gloss Embossing Powder and miracle tape that i used to adhere the art board to the card, it is quite strong and easy to use.
