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 http://lindaledbetter.com/2014/05/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-3.html
This challenge is being sponsored by http://www.inspirationemporium.com/
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!
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
