Welcome back to the Damask Divas Blog! Today I wanted to share this realistic looking rose brooch that I whipped up to decorate my CTMH apron. I needed a bit of bling to dress it up, so decided to make one just the night before my first Gathering, lol! The base is actually the circle of chipboard that I punched out of the center of one of the decorations in the My Originals Sweet Surprises Card Kit. Yep–it really is! I try to find a use for everything. Then I used liquid glass to attach it to one of my girls’ old, plastic alligator hair clips. With the base finished, I cut out a rose at 5″ from the Art Philosophy cartridge in Tulip and then inked the edges with black. After rolling it up and adhering it with liquid glass, I added a large black Opaque in the center. I layered it onto a large Just Blooms Paper Shape to make it pop a bit from the black apron. The leaves are cut out of New England Ivy cardstock by hand. Then I used my embossing tool to make a center vein on the leaves and inked the edges with New England Ivy Ink. Everything was added to the chipboard base with liquid glass, so I don’t have to worry about it going anywhere!
