Today we start the second week of the Frilly and Funkie current challenge which is to Bring on the Bling ! The lovely Jenny is our host and here's what Jenny has to say:
Be it diamonds, pearls or even glitter we need to see some sparkle on your vintage or shabby chic projects this time.
So, this was a huge challenge for me as I'm not a 'bling' kind of girl. It had me rooting through unpacked, house move boxes in the hopes that I'd find something !
I started with the background and used the Wendy Vecchi Old Ledger stencil with Wendy's white embossing paste. While it was still wet I sprayed it with Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon Spray Distress Stains. Love this colour combination !
When the paste was dry I rubbed a little Treasure Gold over the top. I brayered a piece of white card with acrylic paint then stamped the image from the Wendy Vecchi Discover Art set. I masked off the flower heads and stamped the image twice more.
The panel below the butterfly has had Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey Distress Inks blended over it then I've stamped the numbers stamp from the Tim Holtz Perspective set with Tea Rose Archival ink and then used the Wendy Vecchi Script background stamp using Watering Can Archival ink. I then stamped a border across the top and bottom using the stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Discover Art and Watering Can Archival ink. I die cut a trellis using the Tim Holtz Trellis die from card that I'd blended Distress Ink over. I then stamped over it using the Wendy Vecchi Lots of Leaves background stamp and black Archivl ink.
The beautiful butterfly is also from the Perspective set and I've stamped it with black Archival ink, cut it out then painted it with Distress Markers.
If you've checked out The Funkie Junkie Boutique lately you'll have seen the most gorgeous Kaisercraft embellishments. I've used an ornate corner and painted it black and when dry rubbed Treasure Gold over it and rubbed it up to a shine. If you remember, I had to dig out some bling and found some pearl swirls and also some individual pearls. I've sewn the individual pearls to some May Arts crocheted lace.
So, from a shaky start ! I quite like it in the end ! I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to check out the beautiful DT projects.
