I do love the little roses in the Cake Soiree set and I have been having fun with the rose mask as well, so it seemed a perfect opportunity to make the same card using the GDP colours.
I'll share a tip on using the mask next week so make sure you are signed up to follow me by email - see the rainbow boxes on the right panel of this page.
The peace rose is a yellow/peach with dark pink tips on the petals - so a 2 tone rose is certainly a real thing. I thought the colour challenge this week would work well for Roses.
I have never used Bermuda Bay as a leaf colour before - but challenges are all about - well .. challenging yourself. I'm happy to say that I quite like it as a leaf colour and that I may just try it some more soon.
I used the baby wipe technique to stamp the little roses. I love that the coordinating dies for this set come with TWO of the smaller rose framelits and 2 of the smooth leaf and 2 of the wavy leaf. So when you are preparing you are able to cut twice as many pieces with a single pass of the bigshot - Genius!! ( Note: there are 2 sizes of little rose and this is the larger of the two, there is only one rose framelit for this size) However I did have to fussy cut the little fronds, which was fine.
Don't you love the miniature pink roses - they are a Cecile Brunner rose and these type of roses were on my parent's wedding cake. They bloom every year for Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary and for my birthday. This rose plant was a house warming gift from my aunt. This year they are still blossoming. They smell quite lovely.
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
