Faux, Faux Tea Roses

Posted on

I created some more faux tea roses and used them on to create a piece with a photo of my mother from the 1940s.

I used these supplies to create my roses.

You can find the faux suede technique at Ranger Ink’s site.  I sprayed both sides of my cardstock.  I love how it plumps up the paper and gives it a velvety appearance.  After it was dry, I cut out my roses.  I ran the brush tip of my Distress Markers around the edges – I used Ripe Persimmon on the yellow cardstock and Spun Sugar on the white.  I sprayed them with water and let them dry overnight.  Here’s what they looked like before and after spraying:

Here’s my finished roses:

I used an old wooden plaque I got at the thrift store as the base of my piece.  I painted the edges gold and stamped a mesh pattern with Tree Branch Archival ink.  I put Mom’s photo in a Tim Holtz Cabinet Card Frame after inking the edges with the same ink.  I cut my green faux suede with a leaf scroll die and leaf die.  I layered them on and added the roses.

I decided to submit this as my second entry to the Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 3 – creating faux tea roses using the technique on page 65 of Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities-3Inspiration Emporium is the sponsor for Challenge #3.  Head over to Studio L3 and check out all the great ideas for faux tea roses.

I think the yellow roses are like the Peace roses my dad grew years ago.  Let me know what you think.

P.S. I haven’t heard from Monique to claim her prize, if I don’t hear by Saturday, I’ll draw another name.
