The new challenge at Frilly and Funkie starts today and Nancy is our hostess and is calling the challenge A Haunting Halloween, which is so timely since Halloween is just around the corner - at least that what the merchandise in the stores tell us and the calendar.
I have made a card for one of my little Grandchildren so it is an eclectic mix of vintage and shabby with some child-friendly elements.
I started with some Tim Holtz Color Core card stock for the blank. Then I created a background with some coated card stock that I covered with Scattered Straw DI and then sponged on some Wendy Vecchi Orange Blosson Archival Ink using a sea sponge. A little Black Soot and Bundled Sage DI was sponged on the background and then I used Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp some splatters from the Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge stamp set.
I cut a triangle of the Color Core card stock, embossed it with the Tim Holtz Patchwork embossing folder and inked it with some Black Soot DI. The rosette was also made from the same card stock and then I added a burlap string bow and a computer generated sentiment. The rosette is mounted on some cheesecloth that was dyed with some Black Soot DI. The Halloween ticket is from a Tim Holtz stamp called Odds and Ends and was stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink on grey card stock and then fussy cut while the skulls were cut with my Cameo.
The vintage image is from vintagehalloween.com and the mummy head was made by crisscrossing strips of paper inked with a Recollections script stamp across a punched circle. I added some googly eyes and some hand cut teeth. Finally I added some spiders that were stamped, fussy cut and then covered with a black metallic Sakura gel pen.
The following products used in the creation of this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:
