Ring a ring of Roses...

I thought this an apt title, as this art is a grungepaper rose ring! The idea came to me while I was making roses , and I used the smaller flower from The Artistic Stamper Flower Power set, and grungepaper, of course, and distress inks, 'cos they love the grungepaper, and to make it glitz, Stickles from Ranger! Make the rose as in my previous instructions here

I used Faded Jeans and Mustard Seed distress ink for the colour, and then stamped over with the Dots background. Glue all the pieces together and cut off all the bases of each flower element first before gluing, so they sit flat on the ringbase. Once it was glued together I stickled it all over , first with Crystal stickles, I then glued it solidly onto the ring base and then I thought it needed lifting a little so used Dark Blue to accent the edges. The dotty background is on both sides and shows very subtly through all the glitz. The pictures really don't do it justice.. need a professional photographer! I then finished it off with a smear of the dark blue round the glue at the base to cover up the glue that was showing.
I do hope you like....
Happy Creating!
