Tattered Rose hanging!!
Hi All: Over at lindaledbetter.com Linda and a group of her Awesomely talented friends are holding A -A Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge. This is the 3rd challenge. So in order to play along with this challenge you kinda have to have the book. This challenge is the Faux Tea Rose technique. I some what procrastinated this time, because I was a little intimidated. Finally after about 10 oops roses I finally made some that I liked. I made a wall hanging using the tattered pinecone roses. I used a piece of corrugated cardboard pealed off one of the outside layer used gesso and Peeled paint distress paint on it. Next I distressed a piece of Tim Holtz's Paper stash Wallflower Idea-ology paper inked the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink, and glued it to the cardboard. I ripped, stamped, and inked the edges from a scrap piece from the same page with the Wish stamp from the Stampers anonymous Good Thoughts stamp collection. I then adhered it with pop dots. I then cut, inked Sizzix dies- trellis, garden greens, and tattered pinecone. I of course had to add glitter to the roses. I glued everything down and thought I need more- so I pulled out my embellishment treasure chest and picked a couple out from the Idea-ology Nature adornment collection the butterfly and single stem rose. If you want any of these items you can get them at the Inspiration Emporium (http://www.inspirationemporium.com ). Hope you like it. I think this also works for the Monday Simon Says challenge- Magic. ( simonsaysstampblog.com/MondayChallenge. Hope you like it!
