I made the rosette using bristol board that I coated with gesso. Next I decided to decoupage the surface using torn pieces of newsprint and tissue paper. Recently I discovered the joy of using alcohol inks and I thought I'd try using them on the rosette to add some color. I also colored the buttons with alcohol inks and the lace edge around the buttons. The button in the very center is a button that I made with polymer clay. As a last touch I added some glitter to the outside edge of the rosette and to the leaf-shaped wire on the the stem. I love glitter as much as I love buttons, so I had to add some glitter to the piece.
