It's time for another wonderful challenge over at Frilly and Funkie! This time Cec is our lovely hostess and she has chosen the theme MONOCHROMATIC. She would like you to create a shabby chic or vintage style project using only one colour and it's various hues. A little white for accenting is alright, but NO other neutrals are allowed! One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique!
I decided to do an anniversary card for my niece who was married on a beach in Jamaica last year. I thought a nice blue card with some Summer Waves would maybe take her back to that day, just for a minute or two. I actually ordered some pretty white sand dollar shells, but they didn't arrive in time to add them before I had to take the photos. I will put them on before mailing the card though.
My background was done using one of the new Ken Oliver colours that are now available in Linda's shop. This one is called Ultramarine. I laid down some Wendy Vecchi crackle paste through her Flourish stencil which I think looks like waves, and then dusted with Ranger fine detail embossing powder before adding the colour.
For the deep blue layer, I spritzed a panel with distress ink Mermaid Lagoon and then splashed on a little water to get the drips and drops. The circles were made with the caps of my Mini-mister and Distress Ink Spray bottles. For the light coloured layer, I stamped the Tim Holtz script stamp from the Papillon set using Tumbled Glass, then I dripped some of the ink spray around the edges to make it look like water.
The flowers stamps are Wendy Vecchi. I white embossed them and then coloured with Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. The tag is Tim Holtz. I stamped it with the Distress Damask set in Tumbled Glass. The sentiment is from the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish stamp set. I stamped it using Archival Ink Cobalt Blue.
The doily is from Prima. The gorgeous lace, the hidden white pearls and the bronze embellishment are all from Linda's shop. The small pearls and the bronze embellishment were coloured using Ranger Alcohol inks Stream, Sailboat Blue and Indigo. The leaves were cut from Sizzix Garden Greens.The frame was made with crafter's clay and lightly painted with Salty Ocean paint.
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.
