TIO #49 - Paper Roses...

Here is my newest plaything... grunge paper roses.

This week, I have a different challenge for you... paper roses

Whilst blog-hopping and fnding new stuff, I came across a wonderful blog called JoZart. She had made some fantastic bling using a paper rose from another great designer and blogger called Lynne Forsythe. Inspirational sites to see, so do go have a lookee!! Well, Lynne makes the most WONDERFUL paper roses and the link I have given you is to her fab tutorial... I think you should watch and learn, and try your hand ... so can you dream your tag with some special paper roses and at least one stamp ?? Go on... you know you want to!!! So ENJOY!! (with grateful thanks to Lynne and Jo)

When I first found these on JoZart's blog, I could not resist having a go for the box I was about to distress.

So I made 3 and sprayed them with Starburst Stains. I then added some ribbon, dyed to match. I used my heat gun on it to distress it too, as it shrivels a bit ... but beware, you can overdo it!!! A few beads added the finishing touch, so I have this ear-marked for a friend of mine's birthday next month...
