I decided to experiment with this homemade rose and see what "looks" I could come up with.
The first one (above) I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, lightly inked the edges with brown ink, and added a homemade "pearl" to the center (see the "homemade dew drops" tutorial link on the side).
Here's a closer view
Other supplies used:
- Image from Magic Moonlight Free Images
- Script Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
- Violet and Brown ink pads
- lightly rubbed over embossing - violet first and then brown
- Brown cardstock (matted image on)
The fun thing about these is how simple they are to make -- just three (or in my case four) torn circles, a little glue, and something for the center! Here's a link to a quick tutorial on them.
So go get yourself some cardstock and give them a try --- I'd love to see what you use yours on -- feel free to leave me a comment with a link to your project!

Very nice! They're perfect for those vintage image cards, aren't they? Your pearls are fantastic, too, by the way!

I don't do paper crafts, but I am always amazed at the pretty and creative things other people do it. The pink one was my favorite. I like the simplicity so the flower shows up more and I just plain love pink anyway.
That is beautiful!! Thanks so much for sharing! :)
