EWV Grunge Paper Roses Swap

The Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo! Group is having a grunge paper rose swap.  So I spent this evening making my three roses to go postal tomorrow.  I used Wendy's Studio 490 stamp from the Dimensional Rose Art set.  Each rose requires three stamped flowers.  The brighter red rose actually is made from red felt.  The other two are cut from grunge paper and inked with Distress Inks and then stamped in a darker color with the dots from the flower in her Dreams of Art set.  One is distressed in Fired Brick and stamped with Aged Mahogany dots.  The other is distressed with Broken China and stamped with Weathered Wood dots.  I used Crafter's Pick the Ultimate Glue to hold the dimensional roses together.  I used gold glitter on the red felt rose, Rock Candy Stickles on the blue rose, and Marvy Twinklette red pigmented glitter marker on the red rose.  These are the first roses I've made since buying the stamp set when taking the Lovin' the Grunge hanging workshop from Wendy in which she taught me how to make the rose.  Being a member of this EWV Yahoo! group is a good push for me to get crafting with Wendy's stamps.  Today I received the roses made by my swap sister.  The next part of this swap is to make something with one of the roses I received from Dawn.  I'll post my creation when it's done.
