Hello friends! It's time for the Funkie side of the Frilly and Funkie Design Team to unveil their makes for Cec's challenge, 'Three Is Not A Crowd'.
Here is how Cec describes her theme: Create a vintage or shabby chic project that includes three of something. Examples of three of something could be three different patterned papers, three colours, three layers, three flowers, three bows - the list goes on. This would be a perfect time to use some of the new supplies you received for Christmas or to make space in your stash by using up old supplies. Just remember to think in multiples of three.
This is a super fun challenge, and really quite easy, since I think we tend to do things in three's naturally. I started off with an inky background using three colors: Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass Distress ink. Obviously, I used three Christmas Paper Dolls. I colored them with Distress Markers in the same three colors and after cutting them apart, I layered them in three different heights, using adhesive foam on two of them, and the first adhered directly to the background.
There's three blue stamped Swirly Snowflakes that I inked in Cobalt Archival ink and clear embossed. There are also a trio of icy snowflakes using Tim's Snowflake stencil and Grit Paste. While the paste was wet, I sprinkled with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
I used the grit paste and glitter two more times (for a total of three, dare I add). I made three snowballs out of half pearls covered in grit and glitter mixed with Stampendous Shaved Ice. This new to me lovely product was another of the 12 gifts my friend Autumn sent me for Christmas. Thank you, again, Autumn! I love this stuff! I used it again under the boy's feet, but it looks as if their little sister is above that messy stuff. I couldn't resist putting just a bit in her big brother's hand. I think he's up to no good!
I just love using the grit paste and glitter for the snowflakes. It couldn't look more like freshly fallen snow. Speaking of SNOW, I'm happy to say we have been enjoying our first and possibly our last snow of the season here in the coastal south. While it's a little treacherous driving on the side roads and walking, since there's a good layer of ice beneath it, it IS perfect for sledding! Woo Hoo! We've been having some real good fun!
Lastly, I used three layers of card over my card blank. A Christmas Clippings sticker fills in for my sentiment.
I hope you're inspired to play along with our challenge for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!
