I always get carried away and don't stop enough to take pictures - when will I learn? I expect people have done this before, but I wanted to see what it would be like to make a TH rose from Fresco Paint and Crackle Glaze! I painted some regular Smoothy card with French Roast then Crackle Glaze and then a coat of Butternut - now no longer available! Then I die cut it. Here you can see my experiments with elements before sticking anything down. I've die-cut the ancestors - copies, of course - into ovals and coloured them with a mix of Frescos and DIs. I've also used the little bird stamp from the Hot Pick plate used by Alison and some of the flowers. Like her, I used Coffee Archival. I was a little panicked at this stage because the tags didn't look great to me. Adding the birds, though, made such a difference and I began to like the effect!
Thank you so much for looking in today! You are so welcome! And thank you Paper Artsy and Alison!
