A Vintage Holiday at Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome. It's the beginning of the second week of our latest challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. Our host Nancy has called this one 'A Vintage Holiday'; "Let's get one step closer to finishing up our to-do lists by creating a vintage themed holiday card (as there are lots of different celebrations taking place at this time of year)." As ever the overall challenge winner gets the chance to join us for a Guest Designer spot and one lucky winner gets a $25 shopping voucher for The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Now, as part of the Funkie team its time to unveil my distinctly vintage Christmas card...


And here I go again doubling up with another of my entries to The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas 2014 and this time it's my take on #Tag 4. A few more details on this challenge; this annual challenge is being hosted by Linda Coughlin, the Funkie Junkie herself and has been very generously sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. The idea is that you take inspiration from each of Linda's weekly tags and create your own version, linking all 12 before December 21st to be in with a chance to win.


I took inspiration from Linda's careful stencilling using the Festive Layering Stencil for the two background panels on my card. Far from going to the trouble of masking off sections to ink each one, I went for it with the mini blending tools and a selection of inks to get a multi-coloured version. Love it! Taking to heart Linda's 'very country/homespun' description I used a piece of Tim Holtz ephemera (the alphabet panel) before edging the lot with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicking a little Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain over the top.


Linda had some fantastic red accents. I went for a fussy cut stamped poinsettia (the book pages were glued to card and coloured with Distress Stains) layered over 'Holiday Greens' die cuts and some altered bronze leaves soaked in Snow Cap Alcohol Ink. Finally having added some Distress Stickles to the centre of the poinsettia and a Simple Saying I was done.


So that's my take on 'A Vintage Holiday' for Frilly and Funkie. Now I highly recommend you to hop on over to the main challenge blog to see what my super-talented team mates have created before getting your own entries linked up; as ever there are fabulous prizes up for grabs for the winners.

That's all from me for now but there's lots more still to see; the production line is in full swing here!
In the meantime take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  17. This is fantastic, Jenny. I absolutely LOVE it. I didn't realize your poinsettia was hand cut - gorgeous! The book paper makes it so interesting. Beautiful work with the Holiday Greens but my absolute favorite part is the bronze leaves that you altered with the Snow Cap fixative. You totally changed the look of that product and I'm drooling over them! Sensational job on both the the Filly and Funkie challenge and my rage #4!

    Hugs,
    Linda
