English Rose

This rose was created using Susan Tierney-Cockburn's Garden Notes English Rose die set.
I have created this rose many times using card stock but today I used a piece of light peach Foamiran and shaded the edges with Pearlescent Red PanPastel.  The leaves were die cut using green Foamiran, then Susan's Leaf Tool was used to draw the veins on them.  To shape the rose petals and leaves, a small craft iron was used to warm up the Foamiran then the petals/leaves shaped by gently stretching each one.  A hot glue gun was used to glue the petals together to shape the rose.  Two rose buds were also created with the English Rose die cut petals. 

Here is the card I created with the English Rose.  Susan's Garden Notes Baby's Breath die set was used to create the baby's breath, and her Garden Notes Berry Spray die set used for the berry branch.  Nuvo Buttermilk Crystal Drops were used for the berries.

The sentiment is from one of Susan's stamp sets called 'Cherish'.  It was stamped using VersaFine Ink and Clear embossed.  It was die cut using the Dotted Scallop Rectangle die set.  Before removing it from the die, the edges were sponged with peach ink.  It was attached using double sided dimensional tape.

This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes which is linked below.

I have admired your creations for a long time. It was one of your first Foamiran flowers that got me interested in working with the foam. Thank you for that!
My question is, what did you do for the calyx on the rose buds? I like the look.
Thank you again for sharing your beautiful talents.

I received my Foamiran from a friend in the Netherlands. It will be a product available for Susan's Gardens, with Tonic Studios, when her second release comes out in January.
