Sculptured Rose

I've been wanting to cut apart this rose and layer it together, but haven't had time this summer. I spent all day on Saturday playing with this set and had a GREAT time!

I stamped out two each of the large rose from Fifth Avenue Floral onto both Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette cs using Versamark and white detail ep. I played around with cutting out layers. The bottom layer of the rose is Pretty in Pink, the middle later is cut from one of the Pink Pirouette roses. The "center" of the rose is Pretty in Pink again. I cut two separate petals out, mounted them on dimensionals and raised them up over the rest of the flower. All layers/petals are sponged with either Pink Pirouette or Pretty in Pink, depending on the base color of the cs. I then took an aquapainter and put deeper shadows on the petals where I wanted more depth. It's really very pretty IRL.

I ran Gable Green and Melon Mambo cs through the Big Shot using my favorite Top Note die, cutting out 3 of the Gable Green and one of Melon Mambo. One of the GG Top Notes, I trimmed at the dotted line and stamped with By Definition and sponged the edges with Gable Green. That layer is mounted on the Melon Mambo layer, then over the last two Gable Green layers.

The sentiment was inked using Melon Mambo and Green Galore markers. The corners are highlighted with pink rhinestone brads.
