Today is the turn of the Funkie side of the Frilly and Funkie DT to share their projects for the current challenge. The lovely Cec has chosen My Steamer Trunk, so what we would love to see are projects with the theme of travel, and possibly what you would pack or what desitnation you're going to !
I don't make many cards these days and as my other half's birthday is coming up soon I thought I would take this opportunity to make his birthday card. Photography is his hobby, so that got me thinking about what he would pack for a trip abroad. The gorgeous old fashioned camera is a Darkroom Door stamp and I stamped it first in black Archival ink and then masked it off to do the rest of the stamping. The stack of cases are also a Darkroom Door stamp and I've used coffee Archival ink. The Eiffel Tower and post card stamps are both Artistic Outpost. I then used the film stamp from the Darkroom Door set and stamped around the edge of a piece of card to use as the next layer. The layer below is stamped with post marks, again by Darkroom Door and I've paper pierced around the edge.
The little note book is made from pages from an old book and I've used one of those cheap little alphabet sets to stamp the word 'notes'. I used a brad to keep the book shut and then added an Ideaology pen nib. The very bottom layer (which you can hardly see!) is made from some card that I've blended Distress Inks over, embossed using the Mosaic EF then used embossing ink and clear EP to give it a leathery look.
I hope you get time to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
So, for those in the UK, only 24 hours to go until Tim's workshop ! Can't wait ! If you're on the morning session, see you there !
