Back again (don't faint!) - Yep! I am getting caught up with my Dueling. Tracie is the hostess for the Dazzler Team of the Dueling Darlings and Roses is the theme she chose. In particular, she loves pink roses, so mine are colored pink.
The image is from Flourishes, "Calendar Set 2" and it's hard to think of a better rose image. Her creativity really shone through with her choice of papers, ribbons and other embellishments. Here's what I came up with:
Above is the front, and to the right is the inside.
Just look at those papers, so fun.
The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.
The papers are Neapolitan by American Crafts, "Dear Lizzy" and the doily is by Recollections. Flowers, ribbon and lace are also Recollections and Tracie punched the leaves using Martha Stewart's leaf punch. I just love the yellows and pinks against that brown background on the front. And that gorgeous lace trim just had to be used!!
Thank you for such a great kit Tracie! It was no problem to color the roses pink. In fact, we have pink roses in a blue vase now beside a photo of my daughter. She loved pink.
Peace and hugs to all the Darlings!
