A Rose By Any Other Name ...

WR1

Voila!

My first ever Wendy Vecchi grunge rose and boy am I chuffed with meself!

Wendy has the bestest tutorial on her site ... which you MUST go and look at ... because mine looks nothing like it *LOL*

I was tool challenged from the start, to be honest, because I have not got my clammy and rather messy hands on Wendy's 6 petaled flower stamp ... I improvised and used the Sizzex Daisy 2 die ... I was n't gonna let a small thing like that stop me!

I am guessing the petals are a bit longer on the punch than they are on the stamp!

All in all as a first attempt I am quite chuffed ... Have I mentioned that already!

As for the rest of the project to go with the flower ... well I have n't actually got any further ... I just had an over whelming desire to share and erm ... well ... erm show off a bit too!

Get me! Wendy did all the hard work!
