WOC Blog Hop & Candy

Welcome to the Wild Orchid Crafts Classic Colour Roses Blog Hop!  Today the WOC DT are bringing to you some beautiful new roses called:
CLASSIC COLOUR RANGE OF 
MULBERRY PAPER ROSES!!  
This collection is an all new colour range and is a mixture of Vintage and Soft Faded colours!!!  They are all BEAUTIFUL!!!

If you've come here from the fabulous Jacqui's blog then you are in the right spot.  If not, please go to Bev's blog to start at the beginning of the hop....because you don't want to miss a stop along this amazing hop...plus you HAVE to check out these NEW Classic Colour Roses....they are gorgeous!!!
For my card I have used 2 new to me techniques.  First I stamped my image on some kraft cardstock and then took my paint brush with a little bleach and bleached out the stamped image so that I could use my Copics to color the beautiful image.  After it was colored I ran it through my embossing folder to give the image a faux cross-stiched/fabric look.  I think it's perfect for a vintage theme!  Cotton Lace (from Wild Orchid) adds to the  beautiful vintage look of this card.  Decorative Metal Corners (also from Wild Orchid) were the perfect touch to add even a little more vintage to this card....I absolutely adore these corners...they are so light weight and I adhere them and my flowers to my creations using the fabulous Crafters Pick Incredibly Tacky Glue.  Papers are from the Kaisercraft English Rose Collection.
Flowers from Wild Orchid make up my arrangement which consists of a NEW 35mm Classic Colour Trellis Rose, NEW Classic Colour 25mm Roses, Cherry Blossoms, NEW Classic Colour 10mm Roses, Hip Rosebuds, 4mm Closed Rosebuds, and Burgundy Crystal Stems.
Image corners have been accented with Self Adhesive 3mm Pearls.  I can't believe how many of these pearls come in one package...you definitely are getting more than your $$ worth when purchasing these...and the wide arrangement of colors to choose from at Wild Orchid means that you can match your pearls to any creation you make!!!

Thanks to a very generous Paul and Siri at Wild Orchid Crafts, I'm lucky enough to be able to give away some of these fabulous NEW Classic Colour Roses!!  Make sure you leave a comment for your chance to win the following prize:
There are MORE stops along the hop where you can win some of these beauties too!!!  Our hop runs from today until midday on Saturday April 30th when the winners will be drawn!!!  Only ONE comment per person please!


Your next stop is at the ultra talented Mindy's blog...I know she has something fabulous to share with you!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!  To purchase your very own Classic Colour Roses, click -->HERE<--!
