Tea rose

The Shabby Tearoom 'Monochromatic' challenge
Creative Craft challenges 'Vintage/Distressed'
Kaboodle Doodles 'Distressed'
The Paper Shelter 'Distressed' - again!

Not much time to post so here goes...

I used cream as my neutrel and brown tones. I stiched and sanded around the edge for a distressed look

I used Prima stamps on the kraft tag, stamped with chalk ink for a subtle ty. I'm pleased with the Tim Holtz rose trim which I dyed with a tea bag! Very cool to use something out your kitchen cupboards for colouring things :) The doily also got the colour treatment, but with a Pro Marker and the die cut flourish was inked with 3 different inks, for a shabby worn look that matches a treat. Raffia net has been used to back the tag, and finished off with seam binding.

The flowers and leaves are just layered up. The greeting is a digi stamp, and I thought worked well with the tag theme.
