It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
This challenge is hosted by Cec (CW Card Creations), who has chosen the theme OUT OF THE COLD …CEC says, “It is winter and that means snow and cold in so many places so let’s head to the tropics. Create any vintage or shabby chic project that will make us feel warm – think lots of sunshine, bright colours, flora and fauna and even animals hiding in the rain forest.”
Cut a piece of mixed media cardstock 7 x 5.25 inches. I stamped the new rectangle collage background stamp by Wendy Vecchi in cornflower blue archival ink. Overstamp in jet black archival ink with the botanical register background stamp, also by Wendy Vecchi. I LOVE this stamp!!
I used the new idea-ology block lower cling foam stamps by Tim Holtz with picket fence distress paint to stamp a series of numbers over my background. Once dry, ink up the cling foam stamps with potting soil archival ink and stamp onto scrap paper twice and then stamp, slightly offset over the original stamped image.
Stamp flowers from the flower garden and mini bouquet sets onto distress watercolor cardstock. Scribble distress crayons onto a non stick craft mat, (I used seedless preserve, fossilized amber and peeled paint). Using a water brush, pick up the distress crayon and watercolour the stamped images and fussy cut. I love the depth of colour you get when watercolouring with distress crayons.
Use this dry embossing technique by Tim Holtz to give the bee and the flowers a cool dimensional effect. Attach with glossy accents and 3D foam.
Bend the prongs off a fork from the idea-ology silverware set. To age, dab mushroom alcohol ink on with a cotton bud and allow to dry. Using the other end of the cotton bud, roll over potting soil archival ink and dab onto the fork. Attach with glossy accents.
Punch 2 banners with the Tim Holtz Large banner paper punch. Blend vintage photo distress ink into one and broken china distress ink into the other, spritz with water and once dry mount one over the other, slightly offsetting. Age an idea-ology adornment index clip, using the same technique as the fork, and clip over the banner. Add some remnant rubs inside the index clip window.
I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Thanks for stopping by.
