The Digit-al Dozen Does: Nature - Roses

Guess who has master the art of roses?!?!?
I did my first rose manicure a couple weeks ago and now I want to put them everywhere!  Roses are something that I have been waiting to try for awhile but never did.  The first time I did them was for my Zoya Delight review.  They are so easy to create!!  The more I do them the better I get.  All I think about now is what colors I want to mix to create unique roses.  It's now an obsession!  

I present my favorite rose design to date!

I started with two coats of Don't Bossa Nova Me Around.

I am still working on my vines and leaves so I cheated a little.  I stamped them using UC1-01 and Christmas Gone Paid.  This was my first time using an image from my UberChic plates.  I was a little disappointed with the transfer. Part of the image didn't want pick up.  My guess is that the etching is bad.  Luckily the image is large and I was going to cover up most of it.

I used a large dotting tool to add the base of each rose.  I don't know about you but I am all about bright colors right now.  Bring on Spring!  These colors are Where Did Suzi's Man-Go?, Can't Find My Czechbook and I Just Can't Cope-Acabana.

I used a very thin nail art brush to add the details to the roses.  The brush is one I cut down awhile ago to make thin lines and it works perfectly. I used Live.Love.Carnaval, Incognito In Sausalito and Good Grief!.

I thought the design was missing something, so I went back and added some dots.

Once I added my top coat I lost the details on the yellow roses.  If you look closely, you can see them.

I loved this design so much I wore it for almost a week.  That's a record for me!  Every time I looked at the bright roses I couldn't help but smile.  Plus I got a lot of compliments.  Compliments are the best when the design is freehanded!  Now excuse while I go and do some more rose designs!

Aren't these ladies kicking butt this week?!?!?
