Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a project that I did for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge III hosted by Linda Ledbetter. Challenge number three is a technique found on page 65 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Volume Three book called Faux Tea Roses. If you don't have this great book you can find it here and Tim Holtz will even sign it for you!!! This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium who have a wonderful gift voucher to give away to one lucky random winner. Also, the Curiosity Crew Pick wins a fabulous pack of goodies from Tim and Mario! Now,here is my take on this challenge with Faux Tea Roses.
The base of my project is a Tim Holtz's Burlap Panel.
Next, I used several pieces out of the Thrift Shop Ephemera Pack. I shaded all of the paper pieces with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool. Then I distressed all of the paper edges with a bone folder.
I had a lot of fun making those fabulous Faux Tea Roses of Tim's!
I used several of the metal idea-ology pieces and finish off with a hand dyed bow.
I hope you enjoyed my project, thanks for stopping by and we'll see you next time!
