CC3 - Challenge 3

I love using Tim's faux tea roses technique which is in his Compendium of Curiosities vol 3 page 65 ... so here's my take on it, just in time for Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3 challenge!  This time, it's sponsored by Inspiration Emporium, with a $50 Gift Certificate up for grabs!  And, the chance of some goodies from Tim & Mario!!

I painted the wooden heart with white picket fence, then used paint through Tim's Doily stencil for the background - a little too much, so I then went over the whole heart with picket fence stain, which toned it down nicely!  Then I edged with picked raspberry ink over seedless preserves paint!  I then added the tea roses, & a couple of leaf dies & metal embellishments.  And finally, one of Tim's quote stamps (one I use a lot!).

I enjoyed this!  Back soon!     Kay
