We're kicking off a brand new challenge blog over at Frilly and Funkie, hosted by Linda Coughlin of the The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I'm beyond excited to be part of Linda's design team, and we are all ready to roll! Every other week we'll have a new challenge, and you'll have two weeks to enter. The team is divided into two ‘sides' with one focused on frilly creations and the other on the funkie side.
Each week Linda will offer discounts to her mixed media store as well as a gift certificate for the challenge winner. Linda carries lots of unique products as well as many standy-by supplies, including lots of Ranger goodies. Her prices are great and I can personally vouch for her customer service. (It's kind of like The Hair Club for Men….. “I was a customer, first.”)
For this piece I used a chipboard coaster, Tim Holtz's Papillon stamp, corrugated cardboard, metal embellishments, and a tiny tag I made from a punch. I stamped with Distress Inks (Broken China, Tumbled Glass, and Vintage Photo) as well as Coffee archival ink. I cut the corrugated cardboard with the large ticket and heart dies (Sizzix Movers & Shapers.) Then I ran the Vintage Photo ink pad over the raised edges. The background and mini-tag were heat embossed with clear powder.

I hope you'll visit the challenge blog, the store, and the rest of the design team members… lots of eye candy awaits!
