Good morning my friends ♡♡♡
**Tomorrow I will announce the i-rock WINNER from Monday**
I love all things vintage and when I made this Floral Rose with
the McGill punches, I knew I wanted to take it one step further
and play with the idea of making it a "Ceramic" looking rose.
I won't give you step by step on the making of the rose,
every McGill punch has that, but I will tell you know I made this.
I will be making videos later on as I go one with McGill.
In the photo I forgot the snowflake punch for the base but everything else
you will need is right here.
I used pink card stock, and green card stock, I actually used a very light pink.
First I created the rose from the LIGHT pink card stock,
I used my Imaginisce i-bond to make it stiff and stand tall.
Then I colored the entire rose with my copic marker and allowed it to dry.
Coloring the rose with the copics will allow the crackle draw some of the colors
out and it will make the rose multi colored later on when the crackle dries.
After about an hour I took my Crackle Effects from Ranger, and I carefully
coated the entire rose, making sure to get it underneath every petal.
I also punched green leaves and did not color them.
I let it dry for 24 hours. After that I double check for spots I missed.
When it is completely dry it looks like a cracked ceramic rose.
I adhered the rose to the badge/pin and that was it!
I don't think I can capture the true "ceramic" look that you see
in person. It really does look like I took it off of a plate from the 1920's.
I am excited, and I know it will last for years! :)
I think I might even give it to my girlyfriend who loves all thing vintage too!
