Fifth Avenue Rose


Just got my Fifth Avenue floral set - so gorgeous and with so many creative ways to use it.  First off I decided to take the rose, stamp it up 3 times and watercolour and layer it with each layer smaller than the previous.  I then wet the edges of the rose petals and curled them.  This gave the rose a lovely 3D raised effect though I am not so sure that it is really suitable for mailing as it would get squashed!

This has come out looking slightly blurry but I am sure you will get the idea.

Now I need to try out some other ideas that I have for this set.

this is so beautiful IRL - I'm sure it would survive going into my letter box ;-)
