Good Morning, Everyone!
Today is Prom Day for my younger daughter. We have been having fun for several weeks, with gown and shoe shopping, fittings, and of course, crafting a special project.
Leila's dress is all edgy elegance, so we didn't even try to find a corsage to match it. Instead, I put my Silver Bullet Professional die cutter, and my Foil Master to good use, and made a custom corsage for my beautiful girl.
I echoed the black and neon green color scheme of the gown, and chose silver to accent the wonderful mirrored beads and sequins on the bodice. To make the glossy black and silver papers for the roses, I printed big black rectangles on both sides of plain white copy paper. Using my favorite Penny Duncan Creations rose files, I cut the layers for each rose from the laser printed paper. Then I ran the roses through my Foil Master with glossy black and silver foils from That's Scrap, Inc.
By following Penny's video's, I was able to easily construct all of the roses I needed. I chose to use a combination of PDC Grungy Roses and PDC Rose Design in two sizes for variety. as well as one small bud with a black bead center.
Here are a couple of close ups:
The background leaves are cut from lime green cardstock, again with Penny's files. I added some Distress Ink to tone down the color just a notch, and some embossed veins to add a touch of realism.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my special project today. I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
