Easter Rose Picture

Hallelujah . . .  He is Risen!!

Wishing you and your family a day filled with Easter blessings. I pray you find peace, love, hope and faith in the spirit of God.

I have a vintage Easter rose wall decoration to share with you today. I’m beyond thrilled that Groovi is sharing the design on their Easter banners. Please stop over at Barbara Gray’s blog today to see what she has to share, you don’t want to miss it!
Rose Card JJ 2

While Easter lilies are always so beautiful, I chose to create a vintage Easter wall decoration using stamps from Jayne’s Roses. The design is quite large and perfect for hanging on a wall.

Rose Card JJ1

This picture is my first attempt with the design. I felt the border didn’t come together well, so I recreated the design by eliminating the outer dot border and adding a straight line in place of the dots. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of it but decided to include this photo to show you the design before I started painting.

This is not meant to be a full tutorial, but an attempt to give you an idea of the creative process going on behind the design.

For those of you in Europe, a list of the products used and shopping links are provided at the bottom of the post for shopping at ClarityStamps.com. For those of you in America or Canada, please e-mail me and I’ll contact you.

Rose Octogon

To create the inner border of dots I used the Groovi Octagon shape border plate. I created a template by placing the plate on a light box and drew lines with a pencil onto white copy paper. I elongated the octagon for my design. I then used the Border 2 plate to draw the outer border lines. I placed a sheet of parchment paper over the template and traced the lines using a white pencil.

Rose Line Border

A picture of the Border 2 plate I used to draw the straight lines you see to the far left. I also used this plate to emboss the white pencil lines.

Rose Grid

I used this straight border grid to emboss the dots around the inner border and the dots within the triangular outer border. After I embossed the border of dots and all straight lines, I used Dorso Oil to remove the white pencil lines.

Rose Stamps

I stamped the large rose pattern on a sheet of paper and created the rosebud border with the border stamp. The stamps are bendable. I placed the stamp on a clear block, bending the edges to go around the curves. I used the leaf stamp to create the leaf border within the design.

Rose Border Wash

In this picture you can see the stamped design on white copy paper. I used the masking technique to stamp the leaves within the border. I used the Pergamano semi-square perforating tool to shallow perforate around the outer border. The dots were embossed using the Groovi grid (which has become my “cannot do without” Groovi plate). I painted a wash on the buds with yellow and dark green Pintura paints. I painted the buds with Pintura skin and Pintura fuchsia paints.

Rose border on black

In this picture you can see the white lines and dot border I referred to above. When embossing I taped the parchment onto the border plate to prevent slippage. After stamping the leaves onto copy paper, I then traced them onto the parchment using white Tinta ink.

Rose Wash

Once I completed painting the rosebud border I painted a wash on the parchment (the image was stamped on white copy paper and placed under the parchment. I used Pintura paints to paint the image. For the rose I painted a wash of yellow and fuchsia. For the leaves I painted a wash of yellow and dark green. I used violet and blue for the smaller flowers, with yellow, yellow ochre and cinnamon in the flowers’ centers. I used dark green and cinnamon to paint the leaves and foliage of the smaller flowers.

Rose Wash Leaves

I continued to layer the image with washes, building up the color.

Rose Wash Leaves 4

The image looks a bit warped here due to my poor photography skills. At this point I was almost finished, I began working on finishing the leaves.

Rose Embossing 2

Once the painting was completed I let it dry for a few hours before I began the embossing. I dorsed the back of the focal image with the gold dorso crayon from the natural colors and dorsed the top with the light blue dorso crayon from the lively colors (Dorso Crayons). I dorsed around the rosebud border using the gold dorso crayon. I matched up one of my old Stampin’Up! ink pads to the fuchsia rose and used one of the ClarityStamp brushes to brush color onto the parchment behind the embossed leaves.

Rose Card JJ5

After completion of the embossing, I deeply perforated the perforations in the outer border and cut out the design. I attached a cream piece of card stock under the design. I then cut a piece of fuchsia card stock for a contrasting border and adhered that underneath the cream card stock. I finished it by cutting a larger piece of cream card stock for the bottom layer. I plan on taking this to a framer and having it framed for my guest bedroom.

Thank you for sharing a part of your Easter Sunday with me, it means the world to me!
