Roses For You!

Hello friends
I'm back today to share another ODW (One Die Wonder) project with you -
this time using Rose Creations.
I purchased the little wooden box in Hobbycraft - as you can see it is plain and boring!
These boxes come in different shapes and are very reasonably priced, around £1.99

And here it is after a makeover with Rose Creations! 
Firstly I painted the box lightly with some regular white paint, watered down. 
Once dry I used Distress Ink on the box edges and also by stencilling through
the dies, I placed some dies slightly off the edge and built up a combination of colours and 
blending.  The lid was then stamped with a script stamp (Textures).
The flowers were created with the dies but by cutting vellum.  The leaves cut from green felt. 
I created a video a while back using Rose Creations and shimmer mist - 
in the video I use paper but the technique is the same.
To finish my box I tied some hessian braid/ribbon around it and finished with an extra flower.
It was fun to do and makes a great gift.

Take care friends - I will be back with more posts soon.

Maggie said...

You are just so inspiring. That's a fabulous box now compared to what it was and will make someone so happy. Hope you are having a lovely time.

Janice said...

A lovely idea Chris. I had rose creations die but I could not get on with it in that I wasn't happy with the rose once made up using assortment of layers. I wish spellbinders would bring out a guide on the different ways of using flower dies to create different effects....ask them for me whilst you are there in USA. Thanks Janice xx
