It's time for the next challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. There were some fantastic altered items for the last challenge, make sure you check back on Monday to see if you've won ! For this next challenge the lovely Marjie has set the task to use stencils and masks on your project.
The photo doesn't show the detail too well so it's hard to see that I've used a stencil and a mask on the background. I had the urge to use aqua and pink on this card for some strange reason ! Not my usual colour preferences at all ! I sponged Broken China DI over the mask and then moved it slightly and sponged Tattered Rose DI over it. I also used a stencil to make a border along the bottom and used some more Broken China DI. For the background panels I used a Katzelkraft post mark stamp and on the other I used the Stampin' Up En Francais background stamp. I used a mask over them and sponged some more Broken China DI. The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp and this is it's first outing !
The flower is made from watercolour paper which I've dipped into Tattered Rose DI that I stamped onto my craft sheet and then spritzed with water. The ribbon is seam binding that came as part of the packaging from some goodies I ordered from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and was the perfect colour for this project. I dyed the lace using Linda's technique of picking up some re-inker with a watercolour brush and just painting it with the colour I wanted. I added a Tim Holtz pen nib and clip and the buttons are from my stash.
I'm entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge of Anything Goes.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and don't forget to check out the fab creations of the rest of the DT.
