Shabby Style: Fussy Cut Roses

Good Morning Inker’s!

Are you afraid of your scissors?

Most people cringe at the thought of having to cut out something, we’re always afraid we will make a mistake and the whole thing will be ruined…yikes!  These shabby style paper roses (anyone remember the song Paper Roses?) won’t cause you any headaches, they are quite basic, and will make it easy to give the world of “fussy cutting” a try!

Shabby Style: Fussy Cut Roses

Shabby Style-Fussy Cut Roses on Striped Background wwwGrab yourself a pack of Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper and get out your scissors. Each one of these paper flowers are simply cut following the outside edges of the roses as a guide.

Designer tip: Separate the section of roses you want to work with from the rest of the sheet, and then cut the roses individually. It’s easier to work with small sections at a time, and remember to move the paper, not the scissors when you’re fussy cutting.

Once cut, use a dauber and some Cherry Cobbler ink to give the roses some color, making the center darkest and working towards the outside edges. Distress the edges with some Early Espresso ink, it will give the roses some definition when you layer them.
