Things With Wings for Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome. So it's Week Two of the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge 'Things With Wings' and our host for this one is the lovely Cec. Here's what she has to say; "Use anything with wings as the focal point on your vintage or shabby chic projects this time. Be it of the animal, fantasy or mechanical variety we want your creativity to take flight!" With the chance of a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie, three Top 3 badges, and a draw for a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, there are plenty of reasons to join in the fun.

I definitely tapped into a slightly 'Frillier' side for this card, completely inspired by the amazing Frosted Film creations I saw on a recent Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge. It seemed like the perfect way to replicate the delicate and ethereal beauty of butterflies.

(click on each image for a closer look)

The background panels started life as jumbo tags, altered using the Shabby Chic technique I employed recently on a tag for A Vintage Journey. It may be just me? but one of the latest Distress colours, Hickory Smoke, seems to have a red undertone to it. As a result it worked perfectly with the pale pink butterflies. I used the Distress Paint version in combination with Antique Linen and the Distress Damask stamp set to create a paler panel. The deeper ones were made by embossing manilla card, highlighting the raised areas with Snow Cap pigment ink (Glacier works equally as well) and then spritzing it with Hickory Smoke Distress Spray Stain.



The butterflies were created using Tim Holtz 'Frosted Film' technique, embossed and cut using the Butterfly Duo die set and coloured with Peony Pink and Watering Can Archival Inks. Each one was centred with an Idea-Ology Spinner (great for hiding staples!!!) The beautiful swirling pearl embellishments are on offer in the Clearance section at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and they are easily cut up to fit your projects. I love the little roses which coordinated perfectly with the rest of this card. That wonderful sentiment stamped at the top is another of Wendy Vecchi's gems.



That's it from me for now. I look forward to see which 'Things With Wings' you pick for the challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and for more inspiration please make sure you check out the projects created by my uber-talented Funkie team mates.

Whatever you're up to take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  6. OMG...I just about lost my mind reading your post. I was getting so annoyed that I couldn't see those gorgeous butterflies you made without that dadgum Pinterest logo on them. Then I realized it was because I'm a moron and was running the mouse over the pictures and causing it to pop up! LOLOL....grr...
    Now that I'm not so daft, those are GORGEOUS Jenny!! Your inspiration ALWAYS makes me so happy. Beautiful job.
    Hugs,

  12. This is so lovely - soft and ethereal for sure. While you did tap into your Frilly side for this beauty, the background techniques keep your Funkie side alive and kicking. I love the colour palette and the butterflies are dreamy.

  13. How beautiful - I love your ethereal butterflies - lighter than air with just that delicate blush of colour. Your shabby chic background is just gorgeous (completely agree that Hickory Smoke has a pinkish tinge, seems to lessen as it dries), and the whole piece has a gentle elegance. Lovely!
