With This Ring for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. It's time for another challenge over at the The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. Suzz is your host for this one and she has called it 'With This Ring'. "Summer is a traditional time for weddings. This year we have seen many of the celebrations become virtual, rescheduled or limited to few people participating. We as craft makers can still share our art with the happy couples by creating something beautiful to celebrate their special occasion. I challenge you to create something celebrating a wedding, it can be anything including: layout, card, decor, or gift."

As ever, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and three additional outstanding entries will receive Top 3 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.

Since I had some pretty backgrounds left over from the latest Funkie Junkie Boutique Saturday Showcase post I used a couple of them to create a romantic floral card, ideal for a summer wedding.

In case you haven't seen it my tutorial for creating these colourful backgrounds using Seth Apter's Izink ICE and Pigment Inks it can be found HERE. Initially I chose to use the third piece along from the left and ended up using some from the second piece along from the left as a background since they coordinate so well.

That first strip was cut into two pieces, one just large enough to cover the roses in the centre of the bouquet image from Wendy Vecchi's 'Rosy Art' stamp set. After embossing the roses with white embossing powder I cut around them and glued them on to a matching Mat Mini for extra height and strength.

A piece of card painted with a mix of 'Gilt' and 'Ancient' Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint was used to emboss the whole rose bouquet image which I then cut out with a craft knife. The colourful roses were then glued into the centre to form the focal point of the card.

I then began to play around with the remaining bits of card to create a background for the rose bouquet. As well as selecting some Rose Gold Metallic Kraft Stock and plain coloured card to mat and layer the Seth Apter pieces I stamped Wendy Vecchi's 'All Scratched Up' Background onto a piece of white card using Rose Gold Embossing Powder. To add extra detail to this layer I ended up using a tracing wheel and rose gold gel pen to create faux stitching around the edges. You'll also see in the photo below how I played around with the positioning of the sentiment from Wendy Vecchi's 'Funky Flower Art' stamp set.

Having stuck the various backgrounds, mats and layers together the embossed rose bouquet was glued onto it's complimentary panel with some embossed bronze leaf embellishments and die cut leaf stems underneath. To finish I added the stamped sentiment and a scattering of self adhesive pearls. You can see more of the details in the close up photos below;

So that's my take on the theme 'With This Ring'. My hugely talented team mates have also come up with their own wedding themed projects for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE. And remember to link up your own shabby chic or vintage pieces to be in with a chance of winning one of the fabulous prizes that's up for grabs.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Jenny, you could tip me over with a feather! This is a gorgeous use of those wonderful mixed media panels! I love the embossed flower topping the gilt hand cut leaves. (My goodness, my hands would be hurting from all that cutting!) The details of the faux stitching on that fabulous 'scratched' panel and the pearls make this card even more special. Wonderful card! Big hugs!

  2. Such gorgeous backgrounds and wonderful finished card!!!

  3. I adore your mixed media panels and loved that they were used on a wedding card! Beautiful card with a fabulous mix of colors!

  4. This card is a perfect showcase for your gorgeous backgrounds. The detail you created on the floral bouquet is stunning and it pops against all those wonderful layers.
