Let's make a trio! for Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome! Today it's the turn of the Funkie side of the Design Team to have fun with Sue's challenge 'Let's make a trio!' over at Frilly and Funkie. Here's what she says about the challenge; "One of the things I love to do is work in 3's on a project, 3 tags, 3 panels, 3 arches etc.... so for this challenge I'd like to see projects including 3 of something, but this does need to be the main focal point of your project".

The Design Team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Now I'm totally with Sue on the whole working with three's concept. In fact one of the most important lessons I learned on a composition course was the way creating triangles on your design can make it more visually pleasing to the eye. So I've put a few trios on this Wendy Vecchi inspired card!...

(click on each image for a closer look)

The new Mirror Image Flowers 2 Stamp It Stencil It set is a MUST if you ask me as you can use it in so many ways! Straight forward stamping - easy - stamping a mirror image - simple - use the stencil to colour in the flower and/or leaves - fuss free - create backgrounds quickly and focal images in a heartbeat. And if like me you love your fussy cutting you can do that too!



You can see the panels (a trio of course) in the background stamped using two colours of Archival Ink. Matted and layered onto coordinating card and a stitched piece of kraft card they have that shabby chic look. Then I used my favourite Ticking Background stamp and Wendy's Never Enough Hearts stencil to create a couple of hearts. The third has been altered with a combo of  Red Geranium and Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powders for a textured finish. Three fussy cut Mirror Image flowers, and triples from the Petaloo flower range were scattered around the sentiment and over the hearts, whilst some brass embellishments finished it all off nicely.

Handy hint - if you're working in threes try arranging them in triangular shapes for the best results.



Now it's time to hop on over to Frilly and Funkie to see what my talented teamies have been up to and then we need to see your own creations, complete with threes of anything, linked to the challenge so you can be in with a chance of winning. Good luck everyone!

Oooh, a quick heads up - have you noticed this link in my sidebar? There's a fantastic giveaway going on at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Just follow the link to find out how you can enter to be in with a chance to win a Spring bundle!


I'm back tomorrow with something of a 'crafting marathon' project and hope you can join me then.
For now, thank you for dropping by and whatever you're up to today, take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx
