July Challenge : Roses 3 Ways.

Hello and Welcome to the July Challenge!
Thank you to everyone who played along with the June Kraft + ONE challenge...
so many amazing entries..
and the gallery looks brilliant over in the
Kraft Plus Challenges Facebook Group.. 
Just like  a Rainbow :) 

Winners will be announced soon. :)

Everything is coming up ROSES for this month's challenge

The July Challenge is 


We want you to incorporate Roses THREE ways on your creation. 

For this challenge I was inspired by the current Escape2Create logo
and Masterchef.. where they use a certain ingredient three different ways in a dish.
So, for this challenge you must use roses on your creation.. but in three different ways! 

eg.: stamp of a rose, a stencil of a rose and a photo of a rose
or you may choose to use
a rose flair, washi tape with a rose pattern and a rose flower embellishment.
using any medium you like and any combination you like or any embellishment you like.. but there must be roses used Three DIFFERENT WAYS on your creation .

**Please let us know the three different ways you used roses when you upload your entry 

(thank you again to Amanda for another inspiring  graphic!)

The Design Team have created up a storm this month, using roses in so many different ways on their creations! Love these girls and their creativity. 

We start off with our two new DT members

Janice and Amanda:

Rose patterned paper, Rose stencil, Rose wood veneer, Paper roses, silver ribbon roses

Roses are on ephemera, patterned paper, stickers and photo tab.

Printed on to paper, die cuts and a paper rose.

I have a stitched rose, two paper roses and the black Washi has a rose pattern on it.

I have fussy cut roses from paper, rose stencil on the back ground and rolled roses made from a die!

Using rose transparency, resin rose and rose die cuts in chipboard, cardstock and sticker

subtle stampimg around edge of Kraft, embossed/cut out roses, and rose gold foil pattern paper backing and cut outs

Stamped roses, Rose patterned paper and die cut roses!!!

rose stencil, rose stamp and rose paper flowers 

I've used a stencil, flower stamp & resin roses

Rose Flair, paper flowers, diecut flowers, stencil.

I used fussy cut Roses, a background patterned paper of Roses, a Rose stencil and Rose chipboard.

stencilled roses, 2 ways, wood veneer rose, paper rose & a resin rose

I was totally inspired by the image of the skull with roses because I LOVE skulls. I created my own using a skull stencil and added fussy cut patterned paper roses to it. I also used a rose stencil with a fine black journalling pen to add stencilled roses to my background. For my third rose element I used a red washi tape with a tiny rose print
