Parchment Roses


Isn’t this so pretty!  You know me, I’m never too far away from anything floral.  I couldn’t resist the cut blooms from my garden that match the parchment flowers and leaves perfectly.  I’m moving right along with parchment craft and having a lot of fun in the learning process!  It wasn’t long after we returned from Nashville that I started right in on this design.  The pattern has a photograph placed in the oval, I altered it a bit by placing flowers instead. 

The design is a faux hand held mirror.  I traced the pattern from the Pergamano Classic Designs book with a Mapping Pen and Tinta White ink onto Regular Parchment Paper.  Pergamano embossing and perforating tools were used for the embossing and perforating on the design.  (Shopping Supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.)


The two white roses at the top of the photo are from a sucker that sprouted on one of my English rose bushes.  I know it should be cut, but I’m loving the white roses and have decided to let it run wild.  I’ve never had blooms on a sucker and while the blooms are deformed, they’re absolutely gorgeous, almost looking like gardenias.  The fuschia blooms are from my Old Blush (antique China rose) rose bushes that I pretty much let grow wild and unkept.  I love a natural wild look in my garden (so do the snakes . . . LOL).


The parchment roses were pretty easy to make.  I made them using Regular Parchment Paper and varied the pink/bordeaux hues by using Dorso Crayons.  The white roses were left uncolored, the embossing turned them white.  I used Tinta Leaf Green ink to color the large leaves.  The veins were embossed using a Fine Stylus Embossing Tool.


In contrast, to show you another look, I placed the mirror design on a coffee table (which is where I’m going to keep it).  The mirror measures 9-1/8″ x 4-1/2″.  The little stars around the bottom of the design show well against the brown background.  I used Pergamano Parchment Scissors Stainless for all cutting. 


I love the translucency of the rose petals and leaves, they’re so soft and delicate.  Each rose has a stack of four flowers that was embossed with a Large Ball Embossing Tool.  I adhered the layers with Perga Kit 3D Adhesive to form the rose.  I embossed the tiny wild flowers and painted the leaves with Pintura Light Green and Pintura Ochre Yellow paint.  The center veins of the smaller leaves were drawn with Tinta Leaf Green ink.  The flower centers were painted with Pintura Ochre Yellow and Pintura Cinnamon paint.  Joy! Craft white pearls were placed in the centers of the roses. The roses, wild flowers and leaves were adhered to the mirror with Perga Glue adhesive.


I removed the cut roses so that you can see the design free from my clutter .   .   . LOL!  The little stars at the bottom of the design show well in this photo.  They are my favorite part of the cut work on this design.


A pretty, delicate bow made with May Arts sheer ribbon enhances the design.  I love the touch of elegance the gold trim brings to the design.

  32. Heather says:

    You have real roses in your garden already?! At first glance, I too thought they were gardenias and with a wonderful memory of these, I immediately smiled at their scent. My smile didn’t fade when I found out they were in fact roses 🙂
    You do such lovely work! These teeny roses are precious and I must teach myself how to make them! I can see them being placed on virtually every card I make-lol. I’ve always loved working with teesny objects, which may be why I am so drawn to your gems, but have arthritis everywhere making some things a challenge. I will not let it beat me which is one great reason to learn new crafts. Your inspirations really do nudge me along on the tougher days – thank you!! – but they so brighten even a good day.
