Bring on the Bling
It is time for another new challenge at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny is our hostess this time and wants us to Bring on the Bling with our shabby chic or vintage creations. Be it diamonds, pearls or even glitter she wants to see some sparkle on your projects this time.
I started with some Staples card stock for my blank and then dug out one of my favourite paper pads from Maja Designs called Coffee in the Arbour. I used some of the papers for the background and angled panels and I used one of the images for my focal image, which I mounted on a scrap of card stock. Everything was heavily distressed.
I tucked a doily under one panel, some mess under another and a little piece of venise lace under the image. The pad comes with some tags that you can cut out so I did just that and stamped Just Because on them and then added some burlap string to them before I tucked them under the image as well.
The big flower is made from coffee filters that I cut with the Tim Holtz tattered florals die and then dragged through some watered down Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. The neatest thing is that the pink separated out of the ink and I ended up with a two-toned flower. I added a pearl to the centre of a rhinestone ribbon slider to make the centre of the flower and then added a little bit of iridescent Stickles to the petals.
The leaves and the butterfly are die cuts were cut for me by a friend. I put a light layer of Picket Fence Crackle paint on them and then inked them with some Old Paper Distress Ink. The butterfly is another die cut and I inked it with some Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac DI. Finally I added some dollar store gem flourishes and individual gems to the body of the butterfly.
