Snarky, Silly and Sassy Summer at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. Tera is hosting the latest challenge over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and she's called it 'Snarky, Silly and Sassy Summer'; "Is the summer heat getting to you like it is me? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE summer...But, sometimes the heat can make me feel a little extra sassy! Show my you love of all things sassy, snarky , and just plain silly! I love a good bit of snark, so make me laugh!"

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.

After a bit of head scratching I came up with a card that features the silly sayings from the Dina Wakley Media stamp set 'No Refunds' and selected some summery paint colours to go with it.

I started this card by spreading a few of the brighter colours from the Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint collection onto some Ranger Tim Holtz Mixed Media Heavystock. The fun, quirky figures were stamped on top and trimmed to fit the card.

The background was made using a tutorial I shared for the recent Saturday Showcase post over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. I stamped one of the rectangular shapes from the 'No Refunds' set onto the background using Wendy Vecchi's new 'Mulberry' Archival Ink and then added the quirky people on top. The words came from a couple of the phrases in the same set and a faux stitched border was included using a tracing wheel.

Here are a couple of close ups showing more of the background which includes Dina's funny phrases. You can also see some of the stencilling and collage paper used to create the background along with some splatters of the Peacock paint.

That's my take on the 'Snarky, Silly and Sassy Summer' theme. For even more inspiration the rest of the Design Team 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,

  1. I was thinking a bit picasso with the fun images and colors! Love the idea and how you framed them out with a soft background and the sketched frame.

  2. What a vibrant and fun card! I love the colors and the background is awesome.

  3. What a great way to use those unique figures! I love the juxtaposition of the colorful images atop the subtly colored and textured background. Great fun card!
