Red Roses

Red Roses - I have another Michelle Perkett image for you again today. This one is called Amore. I love her long eyelash. The DP is a Hobby Lobby excluse "Magic of the Season" the entire pad is red, black, cream and white. Yes, it is a Christmas pad, but there are some patterns that are not Christmasie(?). Amore was colored with Copics and I used a gold leaf silver pen on the leaves in her wings. The punch is a MS and I believe it is called Gothic Arch. It kind of reminded my of thorns. I used 2 different sizes of red gemstones.

The challenge this week is Hand made flowers.

I made the flower with my Cuttlebug flower quilling kit. These are so easy, you roll the cutting plate through the Cuttlebug, then you just roll the flower and flatten it when you are finished. I then gathered some black tuille into a circle and glued it to the back of the flower with a big thick glue dot. I finished it up with a gemstone in the center.
