CC3 Challenge #3 - Faux Tea Rose Technique

Here's my tag for the 3rd Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge - to use the Faux Tea Rose Technique that is found on page 65 of Tim Holtz' A Compendium of Curiosities Vol #3.  I'm making tags for all of these challenges and putting them in a Tag Book.   Here's a close up of the lovely tea roses I created using some text and dotted papers.  We cannot share the technique - you need to learn it from your own copy of Tim's book.
But I can share how I put my tag together!
First I adhered some Symphony Tissue tapes on my #8 Manilla Tag.  I painted over the whole tag with Bundled Sage Distress Paint, spritzed it with water, dried it and sponged the whole tag with Walnut Stain Distress Ink (which pretty much covered all the Bundled Sage paint!) then I flicked water on the tag again and blotted it with paper towels.
then I stamped a leaf Art Parts with Studio 490 Reverse Dots using Archival Fern Green ink.  I just pressed the leaf onto the stamp - don't the dots look cute on the leaf?!
Next I made my tea roses and leaves. I used pretty text and dotted papers from the Cowboy Paper Pad from My Minds Eye and sponged them with Vintage Photo.  I also stamped a sentiment from the I Am My Art set from Studio 490 on a Journaling Ticket and sponged the edges with Walnut Stain.
I added some Remnant Rubs Botanical at the top and bottom of my tag.
and a Philosophy Tag that I brushed some Bundled Sage Distress Paint over to highlight the word 'Imagine'  I attached it to the Linen Ribbon  that I looped through the hole with a Wire Pin.
I brushed the Art Parts Leaf with Distress Crackle Paint Clear Rock Candy -  I love the look of the crackle but it kind of masks the pretty dots I stamped on the leaf - you can see the dots on the bottom section better....
I stapled the stamped Journaling Ticket to the bottom of the tag and added a moth from Salvage Stickers/Crowded Attic with a foam dot.  The mushroom is a Remnant Rub/Botanical.
Here's my finished tag, once again.
