It is time for a new challenge at Frilly and Funkie. Pamellia is the hostess for this one and she is calling it Raise It Up. She wants to see lots of layers, lots of panels and/or lots of elements on your shabby chic or vintage project, BUT they must be raised up! Whether you choose to use pop dots, foam squares, silicone glue or another means of support make sure they stand proud.
I started with some Recollections card stock for the blank and then added a background paper from Graphic 45 Time to Flourish pad (the June papers) that had the edges distressed and some foam dots to raise it up.
The doily was inked with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and the lace was dyed with Abandoned Coral DI and they were added next along with the little floral tag, which is cut from the Graphic 45 pad. Then I created the blue panel by embossing a scrap of watercolour card with a stencil from Heidi Swapp. I inked it with Tumbled Glass DI and added a bit of Blue Hawaiian Blue from the Lindy's Magicals Drink Me Silly set that I mixed with Gum Arabic. It also has foam dots to raise it up. The vintage wedding image came next and it is from Victoriana.com.
Next I cut the roses with leaves from the Graphic 45 paper and since I wanted to pop them up and there were no duplicates I traced the outline on scraps of card stock which were then inked with Abandoned Coral, Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans DI. They were then popped up over the buds, which were fussy cut from the paper.
The rosette was made with some Melissa Frances pleated ribbon glued to a circle of card stock and topped with a coordinating die cut element from Graphic 45. Finally I added a little sentiment, postage stamp and butterfly all cut from the paper pad.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fantastic Tuesday - Anything Goes with a twist - use lace

The following products made in the creation of this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:
