I adore these crocheted roses ... making them and using them! So delicate and lacy, they are the perfect embellishment for a romantic look. Using a different hook and yarn, makes this flower just the right size. I wanted this lovely bloom to be my focal point so I used a "light hand" adding just a touch of color.
The seam binding is dyed to a soft shade of yellow and is tied in shabby loops. Velvet leaves and decorative pins add warm hues of purple and artichoke. You can see the greens tucked behind the rose. My tag sweetly says "hello" with a stamp from Pennant Parade and a crown background from Artistic Etchings. Lace and buttons complete the look.
The colors were inspired by this gorgeous collection of photos posted at Play Date Cafe. They are celebrating their 2nd Anniversary this week. Congratulations ladies - here's to many fabulous years to come! Be sure to pay them a visit ... there are always wonderful projects on display from the super talented Design Team there.
It was so nice of you to stop by today ... thanks for visiting!
