Faux Tea Rose

Another long time in between blogging...............................!Eek, were is this year going too?
I decided  that I would enter the latest CC3 challenge as I had a few hours to spare, which is hosted by the lovely Linda. You can find the details here

This challenge is being sponsored by

Challenge 3  is  the Faux Tea Rose Technique.  Part of the challenge is that you are not allowed to do a write up on the technique, sorry about that.
At the moment I am really in to changing "things".  I had brought the bottle shown below a few weeks back in a local supermarket for future use LOL. Okay I brought two! 

So what did I do.........
Out came the most amazing product known to crafters, AKA Wendy Vecchi Embossing paste.  I covered the bottle with the black paste and gave it some added texture before it dried by patting the flat side of the pallet knife all over the bottle. I adore this product for sure.

Look at that texture

 I then covered the bottle over the paste  with two colours of Treasure Gold wax to give it a certain aged look (thanks Hels for the tip).
The flower, tag  and leaves were coloured using Wendy Vecchi Archival inks and Tim Holtz distress ink. 

I added a  stamped tag, rusted wire and the bamboo sticks. 

 I now have a artsy room air freshener.
Thank you for taking the time to come and have a look.
Take care until the next time
