Wordy Rose Wonder

Another set I've been hankering to play with is the  Rose Wonder stamp set and dies. Considering what I did with the Delicate Ornaments and Butterfly thinlits, I think it was obvious what I would do with these dies.

Rather than try the rainbow effect with a rose, I cut the rose out in both Watermelon Wonder cardstock and a sheet of Watermelon Wonder patterned paper. Just like the Delicate Ornaments, I mounted the rose frame on a base before putting in the other pieces. The 2" circle punch is a great size for a base for the the small rose die, though you will need to cut a small notch out as a small bit will stick out.

After mounting the rose, leaves and sentiment on a Lots Of Labels die cut, I felt the the leaves didn't stand enough from the Cucumber Crush patterned paper I was planning to use as a background, so I layered a piece of vellum over the top. I attached the vellum to the card behind the label, since adhesives show through the vellum. However, in the humid weather we have been having lately the vellum was curling up a bit at the edges. To minimise this I wanted to  attach it in more places and closer to the edge, so a few rhinestone jewels help to hide the glue.

I did brush the clear Wink Of Stella  over the Watermelon Wonder patterned paper pieces, but I failed to get a good photo of it :/
