 Just thought I'd show a little box that I've altered with some music paper, and some coffee dyed lace.
Do you like my rose!  I am booked for a Workshop with Hels Sheridan using the Melt Pot,  and DH said it was no good doing the workshop if I didn't have a Melt Pot, so he bought me one for my Birthday!  I only had a small amount of UTEE, but couldn't wait for more to arrive, so only made a couple of things, this rose, using a silicone mould, being one of them,  I added some Lilac embossing powder and this is the result.  When it was cold I used a little gilding wax to the edge of the petals.  My little leaves are actually white paper clay, coloured with Distress ink and then rubbed with a small amount of Glossy Accents.
I decorated the inside and added an image from Nicecrane Designs, called All Seasons Hats,  which I printed out in Black & white, matching the music paper.

That's it for now,  hope you're having a good weekend.  I'm still trying  to to do some catching up with blogland after my few days away.

Beautiful and has a lovely elegance to it.
You had me fooled as I imagined the rose to be ceramic or resin. A gorgeous embellishment.
