This week’s challenge
Our new challenge at Frilly & Funkie is Anything but a Card ~ With a Twist… you need to hide something somewhere on your piece. I’ll admit, that gave me pause. However, I like it when challenges do that! Wendy Vecchi is the focus at Simon Says Stamp & Show this week, and her funky crowned lady stamp came right to mind. I double stamped the crown and used a brad to make it a moving part to reveal my hidden word:
I’ve colored the tag with Distress Inks and Distress Stains, and used lots of Wendy’s background stamps and stencils on it. After it was dry, I attached Tim Holtz’s Idea-ology word band to the bottom (colored with paint). A tiny Chitchat sticker provides my word on her crown.
I stamped the face/crown on Ranger’s Specialty Stamping Paper and colored it with Distress Inks. I sprayed Linda’s jute mesh with Dylusions Ink Sprays, as well as the seam binding serving as ribbon on top. The blue flowers are oldies from my stash that now match my tag thanks to dusty concord Distress Ink.
