New ink, new roses!

Got a call from my LSS on Friday that my order of Tim Holtz' Distress Inks came in!!!! YIPPEE!!!!! I stopped by after leaving my mom's and picked it up.  Then it sat on the studio table being admired and thinking of ALL the possibilities!
Aren't they fabulous?

After much pondering I decided to make some roses!  (Surprise!) I inked them on Friday evening, Saturday morning I started forming the layers. Then life happened.  My mom had not been feeling good on Friday (she's 92, almost 93 and lives independently.).  I called to check on her but she did not answer the phone.  NOT a good thing.  I call my brother to meet us at her place.  My husband and I jumped in the truck and took off to her place. She lives about 20 minutes away.  When we got there, we found her laying on the bathroom floor.  She had fallen and could not get up.  To make a long story short, she has NO broken bones (Thank you God!) but is stiff and sore.  She is in a rehab facilites for a week or two.

In between being at the hospital, driving down to her apartment a couple of times and getting her settled in rehab, I did manage to get 3 roses completed.

The top one is "wild honey", I think I had some "Victorian velvet" on my finger tips and that is why 2 petals look a little different.  The rose on the left is "crushed olive" and the one on the right is "barn red" - my new favorite color for roses!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

  1. Ooo, love the barn red. Nice to seem them up close. They're all awesome, but I'm partial to the wild honey and barn red now that I see them up close. Beautiful roses, BTW!
