It is very early and I'm trying to be quiet so my husband can rest a little longer. It is raining here.....much needed...and it looks like it will a football kind of Sunday. I just wanted to share with you a little jar, I have refurbished to sit on my kitchen counter and hold pens. I discovered Camelot Roses on YouTube and they are gorgeous, so I had to give them a try. I can't remember about who did the video, but the name of it is "Camelot Flower Doop". You need to check out this tutorial and give it a try.
I used Scrapperdashery paper that I have saved for over a year. This paper is mfg. in the UK and very hard to come by here in the states. I don't even know if the co. is still going. But I love this paper and it is double sided and very thick. The name on the sheet is Oscar Wilde. Check out my roses! I just love these and they are very simple to make. I used Tim Holtz's Alterations Die (Tattered Florals) and cut out the two smallest flowers. You can check out the YouTube video to get the specifics. Anyway when I finished I just had to do the UTEE technique on them and I just love how they turned out! Once my petals were cut out I placed them on the embossing pad to get them wet and then I used my tweezers to twist the petals then I sprinkled UTEE onto the petals and used my heat gun to melt, then more UTEE and the heat gun again and so on until I was happy with the look. I think I did about 3 layers. This makes a big mess, so I got a cardboard box and would heat down in that to keep the UTEE from flying everywhere. These flowers would make wonderful pins, or would look lovely on top of a gift. I also used some more of the leaves I made using the Spellbinders Dies. I hope you enjoy this.
Be sure and check out the video on YouTube and give this a try. They are so pretty!
Have a wonderful Sunday, and I wish you Joy!
