I promised I would do a short tutorial on these beautiful flowers so here goes.
These are really easy and oh so beautiful!! I love putting them on everything right now.
I have used Marianne Designs die Chinese Roses, as it has the leaves that can be embossed too.
Run the die through the die cutting machine. I used Bazzil Basics cardstock which is quite heavy.
Separate the die cut.
Then I used a quilling tool, slotted point needle tool.
Starting from the outside of the flower.
Place the cardstock betweent the 2 prongs of the tool and start turning towards you.
Keep rolling towards you.
Keep rolling until you reach the centre of the flower..
Keeping the flower on the tool, put some glue on the centre of the flower.
Press the coil of flower to the glued area and hold for a short time. The glue I use is fairly fast drying and available at Go-Lo here in Australia.
Woo hoo a rolled Chinese Rose!! How clever is that??
I use Distress Ink with a sponge held on a clip tool to burnish or colour around the edge of the rose
This saves getting a lot of ink on fingers, although I still do manage to get some.
Here is another pic of the roses.
And a card with a rose on it.
Hope you get to make some soon, they really are very beautiful and so easy!! Now I am off to make more with very different papers, prints and plains.
Thanks for reading me!!.
