It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
This challenge is hosted by Nancy (Tattered Treasures), who has chosen the theme BOUNTIFUL HARVEST …NANCY says, “Create any vintage or shabby chic project celebrating the bounty of the season in the rich hues of Autumn.”
I confess that since moving I’ve suffered from a fair amount of creative block. I think the stress, exhaustion and mind overload has left me a little creatively flat. Even with this super challenge theme, I sat for the longest time and nothing happened, so I turned to Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2016 for help. Tim guides you through the techniques and before I knew it, I was covered in ink, big smile on my face…
You can see this background technique over on Tim’s blog. I’d forgotten how much I love the remnant rub resist.
I used the Tim Holtz Alphanumeric thinlits dies to create “Thankful,” die cut from cork and laid over the top of textile surface. I created the little pumpkin ticket using the mini pumpkin stencil from set number 22 and applying a little spiced marmalade and peeled paint distress marker through the stencil with a water brush. I added a remnant rub to the bottom and blended in walnut stain distress ink. SO CUTE!
Thanks for stopping by. 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.
