CC3C #3

Here I am again with the third project in this challenge using a faux tea rose. We are not posting instructions on the techniques of the challenge in order to insure that people who want to learn buy Tim Holtz' fabulous book from where we get all our inspiration!

I skipped #2 because it used a product that I did not own and I have vowed to not purchase any more art supplies until I make a good dent in those that I already own.  However, this week's challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.  If I win the $50 gift certificate, I can buy enough new products to ensure I never have to skip a challenge again!

On to the Challenge!

Products used: Distress Ink pads in forest moss and frayed burlap, Distress Paints in bundled sage and picket fence, Ranger's Archival Ink in Jet Black, Ranger's Inkssentials Glossy Accents, My stash: 6X6 chipboard panel, hand-dyed paper, sage ribbon, quote stamp.

Painted chipboard with Bundled Sage distress paint, went over with picket fence to lighten, used glossy accents to attach a piece of my hand-dyed paper.

Went over the entire piece with frayed burlap DI (distress ink)

Added a quote stamp
Added my faux tea rose. Voila!
UPDATE: Congratulations to the winner of this biweekly challenge!  I'm really going to have to up my game if I expect to compete with this caliber of artist!
