Tattered Rose by Tattered Lace

Hi all! Just thought I'd give you a quick heads up on the cards for this week here's a sneak type peak at what we'll be using and then later on today I'll post the finished cards so if anyone bought the Tattered Lace mag issue 11 then you might want to bring the dies with you as this will cut down on waiting time.
Back later with more photos x

Well where did that time go to? Anyway here is the first card. I have used Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord D. Inks for the colour and my Quickie glue pen and Crystal glitter for the sparkle. The roses have been spritzed with Glimmer Mist Lavender Fields before beeing glued together and I found it much easier to shape the petals on the flowers using my tweezers. Once they were dry I added glitter. The ribbon and bow have also been coloured with the glimmer mist spray. For card two I have used Squeezed Lemonade And Wild Honey D.Inks, not got a photo yet as it's not quite finished but it also has a rose on it and is a 6x6 square card and very simple in design as I think the rose is quite a prominent feature and they do take a little time to die cut and make up but are worth it in the end. I used my tackey glue as this was best to glue them together. Strong sharp scissors are needed to trim the base once the flowers are dry before they can be added to the card. The die cut leaves have been highlighted with a glue pen and the crystal glitter. The sentiments have been stamped in Black Versafine and embossed in Clear Powder. Think that's all for now don't forget your tweezers lol! See you soon x GLIMMER MISTS - These I used on the second card - Sunflower, Yellow Daisy and Lily Pad (pale green)
