I tried to follow Happy Heart's instructions for the sculpled rose. I stamped two of the larger roses and cut them out. I cut one slightly smaller than the other. And I cut into the image to help create a few individual petals. I then ran the edges in rose romance to help define the petals even more. I stamped two of the mid size roses and did the same thing as the larger images. I also stamped one mid size rose with the smallest rose with rose romance to create the center. Before attaching all images together, I turned the edges "down" by holding the image with one hand and bending the edges with my fintertips on my other hand. Does that make sense? I rotated the images a few times during assembly to get what I felt was the best looking final rose. It sounds complicated, but it really isn't. I will defintely be making a lot of these.
Thank you for all the compliments!
