Welcome, friends! It's Wednesday and time for the Funkie girls to post their inspiration at Frilly and Funkie for our current challenge "B" Happy chosen by Frilly teammate, Cec.
Here's what Cec has to say about her chosen theme: "Create a shabby chic or vintage project that makes you happy and features birds, bees and/or butterflies. You must use at least one of these things with wings and it must have a place of prominence on your creation but if you wish to use two or more, please feel free to do that."
I made my background with Tim Holtz Botanical 3D Texture Fade and one of the beautiful papers from the Havana A4 paper pad. I just gave the paper a wash of gesso and while still damp, ran it through my die cut machine with the folder. I let it dry completely and swiped Prima's Rose Gold Metallique wax over the raised areas with my finger.
I actually used products from three different Prima paper collections to create and embellish this card. 'Blessed is die cut from one of the Lavender Journaling Cards using a Tim Holtz Stacked Postage die. I edged it with more Rose Gold wax and layered it with Havana Ephemera, Lavender paper and Cherry Blossom washi tape. The key is from Linda's shop; it's colored with Prima Platinum Crackle Paste.
This dimensional butterfly is Lavender's Aislinne. I love how everything works so well together. I've tucked in a pair of Heirloom Roses colored with Gunmetal alcohol ink and Rose Gold wax and some fern from Funkie Florals 3.
butterflies in the pad, and that's what sold me on this collection.
Inside, another of the papers from that same stack, this one featuring some more delicate butterflies and tropical birds. Love this paper!
I pulled out a few more of the ephemera to make a little side load pocket and this simple tag. The larger butterfly on the pocket is another fussy cut from the Lavender paper pad. The pocket is the perfect size for a gift card. I've made this card for my brother and sister in law who will be hosting us for part of our upcoming vacation, and we usually give them a gift card to their favorite local restaurant.
That's what makes me "B" Happy! Be sure to stop by Frilly and Funkie for more inspiration from both my Frilly and Funkie teammates. What makes you happy? I hope you'll find time to share your project featuring bees, butterflies or birds and play along in our "B" Happy challenge at Frilly and Funkie.
