It is time for a new challenge at Frilly and Funkie. This time Suzz is our hostess and is calling it Winter Hues. She describes the challenge this way:
"Winter time brings such a beautiful mix of colors. This challenge requires you use any or all of the following colors: blue, white, silver, gray in your vintage or shabby chic project."
I have made a very shabby and vintage card using white card stock from Recollections for the blank and adding paper from Maja Designs Vintage Frost Basics for the background. I tore another paper from the same pad and added Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste through the Tim Holtz Flourish layering stencil. I split a length of silver crochet ribbon vertically and added that to the edges of this torn panel.
The snowflakes were cut from Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes Thinlets die and sprayed with Lindy's Starburst Frozen Jack Frost ink. A Kaisercraft pearl was added to the centre.
The vintage image came from online and I used a Marvy Uchida Snow Marker to add a bit of detail. Next I cut some Holiday Greens from card stock scraps and sprayed them with Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain. They were topped with a variety of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that had some Stardust Stickles added to the edges.
I dyed some seam binding with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and made a loopy bow. Then I topped that with a loopy bow made from silver crochet thread. I added a silver snowflake charm that had some Snow Cap Mixative Alcohol Ink and a silver pearl added to it.
Finally I created the sentiment on the computer and inked the edges with Weathered Wood DI.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Dies R Us - Winter Blues
The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - S is for Stencils
Cut It Up - It's Snow Fun (Include a snowflake - must have a die cut)
The following products used to create this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
