Grunge Paper Roses
I wanted to share what I was playing with over the weekend - Grunge Paper.
When I seen the grunge paper Rose on Tim Holtz’s site about a month ago and I was green with envy - How did he do that? He taught it at a class and a very nice lady named Liz Walters attended and she spent a TON of time creating great direction on how to make this Grungy beauty - and she SHARED - THANK YOU LIZ - you are the BEST!
The base of each of the flowers was colored with Distressed Inks. On most of them I stamped a background image using Archival ink (it’s waterproof). After the roses were cut and formed I sprayed them with mists.
Well what’s a girl to do with Grunge Roses - I need a 25th Wedding Anniversary card for my brother and best friend so…
Grunge Rose Anniversary:
Side view so that you can see the dimension:
The background is wrinkle free distress, the blue background flowers are Distressed Pearls. Don’t you just love Tim’s idea-ology hardware!!!
In case you are wondering I timed my last Rose (the 6th one) and it took me 40 minutes start to finish. The hardest one to make was the little one - it’s bugger getting those little pieces to go the way you want them to.
I hope you like the Grunge Roses!
