Enamelled Roses

Well although Ellie was out at a Dance Workshop for most of the day, we managed this afternoon/evening before she went to her other Grans to make these:

I had a little practise whilst she was out.  This was my attempt.  One on the right was my first one.  One on left was the second attempt

and this is the second attempt before it was enamelled

and here are the three Ellie made whilst I was preparing dinner!  Two enamelled and one waiting to be enamelled.  Not bad for an 8 year old!

We watched a Creative Expressions demo on C&C with Sue Wilson yesterday, and decided to have a go.   We used an EK punch and some Papermania textured cardstock from a Goodybag.  We adjusted the design slightly from the demo as we had more petals.  Once stuck together with pinflair glue, they were then enamelled with UTEE in a melt pot (i.e. a foil case from a meat pie from the chip shop!)
