What are you most proud of? Well, for my first try that I didn't even use cutters or anything...I think it isn't to shabby. To bad I did it at about 2 am...I gave up adding petals due to sleepy crossed eyes ;o)

Thanks! I realized that I wasn't finding the color shade that I wanted in the stores - trying to match up with the roses in the wedding so I actually combined some hot pink and brown dust that I had on hand. I thought that the rose pink wasn't deep enough for the look I was going for and when I mixed the rose with the hot pink it was way off, and with the brown...it was too muddy looking for what I wanted. So I thought the hot pink would mix better with the brown & it did! Never be shy to mix and match, you will be amazed at the beautiful shades you can come up with. (I also mixed the golden yellow with the brown to get the mustard shade for the center)
