So Delicate with The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. I am hosting the latest challenge over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. I've called this one 'So Delicate'; "Although it's not always evident in my projects, I have a real passion for delicate laces, fragile flowers, fine stitching, intricate artwork and exquisite architecture. For this challenge create something delicate or a vintage/shabby chic project that features delicate things in it."

The Design Team will choose their four top picks with the overall winner receiving a $25 gift certificate to go on a spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. All four top picks will receive badges to display on their blogs in recognition of their outstanding contributions.

I've made a small greetings card using a couple of Eileen Hull's new die sets from Sizzix, combining them with a verdigris style paint effect in the background. The delicacy of the flower designs is enhanced with the use of vellum which can easily be folded and tiny drops of Wendy Vecchi's Liquid Pearls lift the whole design.


Here's a close up of the flowers and mandala background taken at an angle so you can see the dimension and design in more detail;


For now that's my take on the theme 'So Delicate'. I will be back this coming Saturday over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog with a tutorial for this and three more cards and hope you can join me over there then. In the meantime my fabulous team mates have also come up with their own projects for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE.

For now, thanks for visiting,
Jenny xxx
