Shabby Chic Paper Rose Topiary

So I decided to enter the Market Street Stamp "Paint the Town" color challenge this month.


Aren't those gorgeous colors? I only used two of the colors but I think that is okay... and if it's not.. I will find out! LOL

Here is a photo of my entry.


I used a 4" styrofoam ball, 12" dowel, a white pot, some moss, white sheer ribbon, some paper roses, and the Bit of Burlap background stamp from Market Street Stamps.

I created the two different color roses. One set with Bubblegum Pink tone and the other with the Berry tone. I used the background stamp on the Bubblegum Pink roses only. Here is a close-up.


I used brown ink and inked all the edges before assembling the rose from SVG Attic's Your's Truly SVG set.

I hot glued all FORTY... YES... FORTY roses to the ball. It took me a few days to get this finished and for me that was fast considering I have kids, husband, house, and carpeltunnel in my hands (YUCK).



Thanks for stopping by!
