It's time for the next challenge at Frilly and Funkie, and this time the lovely, talented Marjie has chosen the theme of chipboard and metal. Here's what Marjie has to say:
This week we're looking for two elements on the project of your choice.
We want to see chipboard and metal. It can be purchased, homemade, or
faux. You can use branded chipboard pieces or cut up a cereal box...
choose items from the hardware store or simple household metals like
staples or paperclips. Ranger's foil sheets would work too. The options
are endless! We want you to be creative and can't wait to see what you
share with us.
I've made this card for my sister to give to her eldest daughter. I started with the background and blended Milled Lavender DI over white card stock and then stamped an Elusive Images stamp in the same ink. On the piece of Crinoline I used some Crafty Individuals stamps and stamped them using black Archival ink. I used the Tim Holtz text stamp from the Papillon set and blended Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves DI around the edge. The main image is an Indigo Blu stamp and I've stamped it with black Archival ink and cut it out by hand.
The heart is made from chipboard and is from a Chippies set, which I've sanded, painted with white acrylic paint and then stamped with a Katzelkraft text stamp. The gorgeous lock is by Melissa Frances. The dress form is wooden and I've also painted it with white acrylic paint and stamped it with the same text stamp as the heart. I've used Tim Holtz Foil Tape for the zig zag, which is made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I've used alcohol inks, and acrylic paint on it and then rubbed black Stazon ink across the top. The beautiful lace is form Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique.
