Lucy had a great day out yesterday - the weather wasn't too bad either. Its Penny's turn today so here's hoping she has as much fun and as much luck with the weather!
Today I've got my entry for the latest CC3 challenge hosted by Linda ledbetter to share with you. This time the technique involves using Tims pinecone die to make faux tea roses. Prizes for the challenge are provided by Tim and Mario and also the odd numbered challenges are supported by the inspiration emporium who are offering a $50 prize.
I have decorated a box from the MDF man - I started by painting the whole box with black gesso then covering the sides and top with papers from the 8x8 menagerie collection.
Once I had got the papers on I set to decorating the top with more Tim goodies starting with a diecut from the lattice die.
Next came the faux tea roses made using the pinecone die using the technique in the compendium of curiosities vol 3 as detailed on page 65. They were cut in white and cream card and I coloured them using DI (barn door). I also stamped the sentiment then diecut that and used the DI to colour the edges. The leaves are cut from the tattered leaves die and bent up to give them some shape. Finally the 'shield'. This is a spellbinders bezel and has been filled with UTEE melted in the meltpot.
this is the inside of the box.
I should like to enter this box into the compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-3CC3 challenge for faux tea roses and also the challenge at A vintage journey called get-some-texture.
Thats all for today! Hope you have a good tuesday and thanks for joining me today! Big hugs to you! Rachel xx
