Frilly and Funkie - It's Summer!

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another wonderful challenge over at Frilly and Funkie! This time Nancy is our lovely hostess and she has chosen the theme IT'S SUMMER. She would like you to create a shabby chic or vintage style project showcasing what you enjoy most about this wonderful season, maybe you enjoy traveling, growing a garden, or just laying on the beach. One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

What I love most about summer is how vibrant the world is! After 6 or 7 months of drab and dreary greys and whites, the world just seems to come alive with blue skies. aqua waters, green trees, beautiful flowers and all the wonderful birds and butterflies. So that was the inspiration for my summer creation.



The background was done with the new Ken Oliver Colour Bursts that Linda sells in the shop. I used Pthalo Green, Ultramarine Blue and Lemon Yellow. I outlined the panel with White Opal Liquid Pearls which I coated with white embossing powder to brighten the drops to a crisp white. The stencil is from Wendy Vecchi, I also covered it with white embossing powder.



The flowers were cut using Tattered Florals and coloured with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks. The tags are made out of corrugated cardboard and cut with The Tag Collection die set. The heart is from Linda's shop. I painted it with Mustard Seed distress paint and dabbed a little Picket Fence on the top to lighten it. The decorative stamp in the corner is from the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish collection.



The seam binding was coloured with distress inks Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers. The little rose is a Heirloom Rose from Tim Holtz.



The butterflies are from the French Flight Tim Holtz set and coloured with distress spray inks using a tiny paintbrush. The sentiment is from the Chit Chat sticker book. I hope you can see the gorgeous shimmer on the tags. I painted them with Gesso and then a light coating of a pearl paint. So pretty!



UPDATE:
My card won an award in the following wonderful challenge:
