~second try at a paper rose~

Here's my second attempt at making a paper rose (on right). The first one (on left) I did all wrong..I dyed my coffee filters first for the second rose because I had no more pink watercolor paint. I then went to Martha Stewart's site and found the video & closely watched it. I just think with these practice makes perfect. Cassie Chappell's roses from Mommy Makes Roses are fabulous because she has made so many..Instead of using colored paper for my leaves I used coffee filter paper and then hand painted the leaves with watercolor paint.
"if anyone is making these out there would you please let me know? I'd love to see them"~Mary~ :-}

Mary,
They look so real in the picture.
What a great craft. How long does it take to make just one? It looks time consuming. Will it keep me from cleaning the kids' bedrooms a little longer????

Mary, these are lovely! Nice job. I know that Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage & Connie at Living Beautifully are both doing them, too. I watched the video, but would never have the patience for that!! Yours are very life-like!

I'd have said the first one is fabulous, but now the second one is twice as realistic. Oh so nice.
