I had originally intended the rose to have leaves so I thought I would give you a couple of photos here as an additional idea. It didn't look right on the final vase but I think it would look nice on maybe a flatter project such as a box.
I used the leaf from Ellen Vargo Eclectica 02 and stamped it on the calico with a mixture of Granny Smith and Toad Hall Frescos. I cut some out full size and some I cut a shaving off, following the lines as shown, to make smaller leaves. I coated them in the transparent Powertex and shaped them a little when they were sticky.
I also stamped Cogs in Slate as I had thought they would work well as flower centres. I made some flowers using the large Spiral from Ellen Vargo Eclectica 02 and they turned out fantastic but again I didn't need them. Lots of ideas for future projects though!
I do hope you will hop on over to see me at PaperArtsy and let me know what you thought!
