Kia Ora and Welcome Back
Time for Inspiration Wednesday from Heartfelt Creations. I have two cards up today and I will put them on separate posts to be easier to read and follow my instructions.
The first card I am featuring is a card that has a very autumnal/wintery feel to it for those in the northern hemisphere. The warm fire looks very inviting with the frost around the windows and on the flowers.
I have done these roses before here, but this time I used different colours and when I frosted them with Rajni Chawla’s Frosting Powder they looked like autumn roses touched with a heavy frost.

Sponge the outside of the petals with the Poppy ink and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Instead of turning the petals over to shape in the centre keep the flowers in a ball. Roll the smallest petals up and close with Dries Clear Glue. Add the next size petal set and adhere over the bud. Continue to add the larger sizes to make the roses in different sizes. Add Frosting Powder to the flowers using Dries Clear Glue and heat for a frosted look.
