CC3C - Challenge #3
This project turned into a bit of a labour of love as it took me quite a while to get it finished. I began by stencilling the canvas with a Prima stencil all over - I initially painted it blue but it looked too bright so I sponged over it with cream and white paints to get a multi-toned effect before highlighting the texture with Inka Gold.
I am in love with this versatile Sizzix die and have about 20 little roses on my desk waiting for some love as I just kept on making them (great in-front-of-the-TV crafting!).
The kraft card layer is stamped and wrapped with sheer net ribbon. I embellished with die cut book paper leaves and a bird stamp from Tim's Bird Feather set, carrying a little heart charm in his beak (I altered the charm with ink too).
This is for the third CC3C Challenge, faux tea roses, sponsored by Inspiration Emporium who are offering a fab $50 voucher to spend on crafty loveliness!
As I used texture paste I am entering for the latest That's Crafty Challenge too.
Thanks for visiting me today :). See you soon.
