Anything Goes with The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. For the latest challenge over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog we are going with an 'Anything Goes' theme and are looking forward to seeing your vintage/shabby chic projects.

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 another collage card for this challenge but in contrast to the last set there's plenty of colour on this one as we look forward to the imminent arrival of Spring and all it holds.

The flowers come from Wendy Vecchi's 'Spring Bouquet' Stamp It Stencil It set and have been painted using Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints. To ensure they stand out against the paler background I've used some of the brighter paint colours (Apricot, Carnation, Blushing, Lemon and a Lime/Umber mix) and stamped them on top of a deeper coloured gel plate print (which is mainly Sedona).

As well as some hand stitching there's a little lace trim and dots of Wendy Vecchi 'Sunflower' Liquid Pearls. The sentiment comes from the Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART Stamp/Die/Stencil Set 'A Million Thanks'. The pale textured background has been designed to emulate the crumbling walls seen on Venetian buildings - I'll be back this Saturday with a tutorial for that and some extra projects using it.

For now that's my take on the 'Anything Goes' theme. For even more inspiration my amazing team mates have 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,

Products used to create this card are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and are listed/linked below.


  1. Again another beautiful mix of vintage antique effect and pops of beautiful bright flowers! Lovely!

  2. Another beauty to behold Jenny, I always love to get as close as I can to discover all that extra detail you add for us all. I found the crackle and the stitched line drawing the eye towards that pop of colour that grounds those stunning blooms. What a lovely creation and what makes me even more absorbed is that I know it was made with love. Stunning!!
    Thank you as always for this inspiring creation.
    Stays safe & every creative Tracey x

  3. This is stunning. Love the textured background and all the colour layers on top. This is grungy and elegant at the same time.
