Another example of the watercolor roses technique....

I layered this rose on Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip and a sheet from SU's Candy Lane ds.  The leaves are cut out with the Big Shot using the Big Leaf die.  The layered ribbons are SU's 5/8" chocolate grosgrain and the Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.

The bottom edge was cut using the eyelet border punch on Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke and  Pretty in Pink cs.  I layered the edges and glued clear dark red beads from the Bead Duos in the eyelet "holes" in the Chocolate Chip Layer.

The beads are very striking IRL!
