Frilly and Funkie - Happy Happy

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another wonderful challenge over at Frilly and Funkie! This time Georgie is our lovely hostess and she has chosen the theme HAPPY HAPPY. She would like you to create a shabby chic or vintage style project that you love doing, a product you love using, or something that makes you so happy it gives you inspiration to make something beautiful!. One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

What makes me happy...dripping, dropping, flicking, splotching, smooshing. swooshing, swiping and wiping! Oh yeah, and I almost forgot the most important one...EXPERIMENTING! After my last card, which was completely void of anything messy, I dove in head first with this and made a mess beyond compare. As it turns out, the dogs ended up pink, green AND yellow! HAHA! That's OK, they're my favourite colours for spring anyway!



I just received some fabulous new products from Linda's shop that I have been dying to play with, so I took the opportunity to experiment with them, and oh boy, how fun! This flower is my new Wendy Vecchi Hydrangea stamp. I stamped it with Coffee Archival ink and embossed it with Ranger clear embossing powder. The pink petals and green leaves were both water coloured with my new Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals from the Autumn Leaves collection. I also threw in some Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry and Victorian Velvet on the petals and Shabby Shutters on the leaves.


The tag is cut from the Tim Holtz Tag Collection set and then I used the Tim Holtz Latticework stencil and Wendy Vecchi crackle paste to lay the pattern. It was splashed with more Lindy's Magicals and some distress sprays Wild Honey and the new Ken Oliver Colour Burst Lemon Yellow. you can see all of the amazing colours in the Lindy's Magicals. It's so shimmery and gorgeous, the camera doesn't do it justice at all!!



For the background, I coated my paper with Gesso and then I stamped and coloured a bunch of the Hydrangea and then filled in between with the Tim Holtz script stamp from the Papillon stamp set. I coloured a bit with Antique Linen and edged with Gathered Twigs. The butterfly is from the French Flight stamp set, coloured with Mustard Seed.


The bronze key, the bronze corner piece and the beautiful lace are all from Linda's shop. The leaves were cut with Tim Holtz's Garden Greens die and coloured with Peeled Paint ink spray. The tiny bottle is from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology and the pin is from my stash.



The fancy frame is from Spellbinders. I cut it out of foam and covered it with Picket Fence Crackle Paint. The flower is cut from Tattered Florals and coloured with Wild Honey and Mustard Seed. The tiny porcelain looking flower in the center is a Tim Holtz Heirloom Rose.




All of the following products that I used can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  20. I started to say WOW and then saw that Jenny started out the same way - LOL. But this really is a WOW! piece. There is so much going on - so many yummy layers and textures. Wendy's hydrangea has NEVER looked so beautiful. Love the way you used the Lindy's products and how you worked in all the metal pieces. And the Spellbinders die cut from foam looks amazing. I never would have thought to use that and must try it.

    Hugs,
    Linda
