CC3C #3

Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #3

Once again I have turned to another page in this great book and found  this next challenge. The challenge is to use Tim's Faux Tea Rose Technique
I can't tell you how I made my roses but I will say that I cut them down so they would be smaller and fit on the ole jalopy :) I cut the flowers from white cardstock and then sprayed them with a mix of fired brick distress ink mixed with perfect pearls love the glimmer they have.

I loved the first challenge so much that I wanted to give it another try. I was going for a sunset. I really do like this technique.

The following products were also used:
perfect pearls mists heirloom gold
Ranger foil cardstock
Tim Holtz's collage embossing folder
distress paints
distress inks
Tim Holtz old Jalopy sizzix die

Once again Inspiration Emporium will be sponsoring this challenge. One lucky winner will win a 50.00 gift certificate!!

If you are interested in joining in on the challenges Linda over at StudioL3 would love to have you join in!

All the best

  2. Girl, I like this! It looks like an old car, with weeds growing up around the tires and the "treasure your memories" just says it. Thanks for sharing this. Love it. The roses are just the right finish.
