Rose Petal Love

Hi Friends~ Today I have a fun project to share with you!  When I first saw the Rose Petal stamp in the New Mini Sampler Edition #1 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD I immediately thought of Anne Geddes!  I have admired Anne's photography forever.  If you are unaware of Anne Geddes she takes fabulous childrens photographs!  Some day when I have children I am hoping to have some fun baby pictures influenced by Miss. Geddes and now by Elisabeth Bell with her brilliant beauty! 
I found this gorgeous shadow box/photo frame on one of my shopping excursions.  It actually was a compose your own monogram frame...however, when I saw it I knew I could add some beautiful flowers, and a gorgeous image to make this a beautiful wall hanging.
Rose Petal was colored with CopicsStar Dust stickles was used to accent the rose on top of her head.  I wanted to use my Champagne Pink Wild Orchid Roses, so that is what inspired me to color the roses on my image the pink and yellow that they are.  The background that Rose Petal was popped up on has been created with Viva Decor Pearl Champagne Modeling Cream and my Dreamweaver Flower Lace Stencil.  I love how using the Modeling cream and stencil adds such an elegant look to this amazing image!
Flowers of course are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts and the arrangements consist of 25mm Wild Roses, Cherry Blossoms, 6mm closed rosebuds, and 15mm Roses.  Again all flowers came in the Champagne Pink color (one of my ultimate favorite colors from WOC!)
For this angle I am hoping you can see all of the sparkle as well as the beauty from the Viva Modeling Cream!  Thanks for stopping in to see my creation! 

This wall hanging will be for sale in my Shophandmade Store shortly, if you are interested in purchasing it.  For those of you unfamiliar with Shophandmade....It is VERY similar to ETSY except it has LOWER selling costs associated with listing your items for sale!

This is just extraordinary - amazing background & I too love this image. The roses are stunning, so pretty in that colour & you really captured the echo of them in your colouring. Hope you have some good news on the job front too.

Holy moly. I kept challenging myself to figure out what the background was, but nothing I thought of could have prepared me for what you actually did. Truly amazing job. It was genius and turned out so great, and the embossing folder, wow, I hope I can program myself to think of those things. That little sweety is colored so perfectly, the whole thing came out masterfully.
