Painting the Rosed Red

They're painting the roses red at the ALTERED ALICE this month so paint has to be used somewhere on projects. The paint I've used is red Pergamano Pintura.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do until I saw that one of the Dover Publications freebies last week was a page from a children's Alice colouring and puzzle book, the maze was just what I wanted so I made this easel card.
I coloured the maze with Promarkers and used the paint on the roses and card men then attached it to the easel card that I'd covered with spotty paper. I made the roses with torn red paper that had a white core so I  used the paint to get rid of this but left a little bit of the white showing. I attached some die cut leaves and the roses to the card. The rose bottom right has been made with an Artistic Stamper stamp that I decided to leave white. I rounded the corners of some small playing cards then attached them to the card base, the last thing that I did was to paint some splats on the cards.
For the leaves I used Marianne Design and Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations dies.
Here is a close up of the white flower.
