Apricot Roses

I am so sad to see this set on the retiring list it makes the most gorgeous roses! I made the roses by first stamping the rose in apricot ink and rolling the edge is rose red ink, continued on all three pieces to the rose. Then I cut out all three pieces and used a stylus on the back side to curl the edges of the petals, and then used the stylus on the front of rose to indent the centers. Then taped them together and add Iridescent Ice the picture doesn't really show how sparkly they are for real.

The colors I used for today's color challenge on SCS, you will find that challenge here CC114: Apricot Roses. I'm not too fond of these colors together, a little bright but still OK.

Don't forget to check out stamps for sale , there is both current and retired stamps on the list.

Supplies: Roses In Winter, Tempting Turquoise, Rose red, and WW card stock, Tempting Turquoise, Rose red, Green Galore and Apricot Appeal inks, Versa marker,Cuttlebug, Brads, Ribbon, Stylus, II, and Dimensionals.

Hi Kelly!
Sorry I've been gone for so long--over a week. I was really sick all last week and didn't get to browsing blogs. I LOVE my RIW set too and have never tried this type of rose! You make it look so easy. It's gorgeous. TFS :)
