Frilly and Funkie - A Stitch in Time

Hello Everyone!

It's time for another wonderful challenge over at Frilly and Funkie! This time the very fabulous and talented Sue is our hostess and she has chosen the theme A STITCH IN TIME. Here is what Sue had to say "What I love to do is incorporate sewing into projects, this could be real of faux, it adds an extra dimension to your artwork. So, for this challenge we want to see stitching somewhere on your projects, real or faux will do! BUT I would also like to see a timepiece too!" One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique!



For the stitching part of the challenge, I decided to use some black stitching as an accent around the edge of my background panel and my tag. The tag was cut using the Sizzix Tag Collection die set. I coloured it with Tumbled Glass and Iced Spruce distress inks and stamped it with the Wendy Vecchi Vintage Lace stamp using Wendy Vecchi Watering Can Archival ink. That gorgeous piece of black lace is from May Arts, a new brand that Linda now carries in the shop.



For the background panel, I used a piece of Linda's corrugated cardboard and glued some white paper on the top, ripping it off in some areas, exposing the corrugated parts underneath. I painted it with Picket Fence distress paint and then coloured it with Tumbled Glass and Iced Spruce. I stamped some damask designs using the Tim Holtz Distress Damask stamp set and Watering Can Archival ink and then I use the Dot Fade stencil from Tim Holtz and some texture paste to lay down some extra design.


The corners are adorned with foam pieces that I cut using the new Spellbinders Garden Weave corner die. On top of that are some bronze filigree corner pieces from Linda's shop that I painted with Black Soot, dabbed with Picket Fence and then highlighted with a touch of Silver embossing powder from Ranger. The border on the very back panel is from the Time to Flourish stamp set from Graphic 45.



The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker book. The butterfly is from Tim Holtz, stamped with Watering Can Archival ink. The body of the butterfly is an embellishment that Linda included in my last package, so pretty!! For my 'time' portion of the challenge, I added this little bronze clock charm which I treated the same way as the bronze corner pieces. I also added some gorgeous little mirror stars from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology collection.


UPDATE:
My card was the winner of the following wonderful challenge:

  33. Wow - this card is playing tricks on my eyes.... like black and white next to all the other color on the page... I was stunned. I can only imagine how INCREDIBLY MAGNIFICENT it must be in person Pamellia. It is GORGEOUS - so unique. I do love that there is a bit of the blue/green colors - just a intriguing POP of color but the black/white combo is what really has me awed. j.

  34. Well, Pamellia, there you go again, reading my mind! I have been picturing the black and white color combo in my mind recently, but still not able to put those ideas to paper yet. I'm so glad to see you use them here, and with the soft blues, it really looks stunning! Your background papers are just beautiful and set off with that fabulous stitching. I love the butterfly with his clock body! Yum! Just another awesome creation from the hands of Pamellia! BEAUTIFUL! Big hugs!
