Frilly and Funkie. Our hostess is Sue Carrington and she wants us to show her how we can "resist". I used two types of resist on this piece. One is the traditional emboss resist and the other was done using Tim Holtz's whitewash stamping technique. That's the challenge over at Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge this week, which is on page 47 of the Compendium 2 book. The emboss resist was done on the dress form and the sentiment using white embossing powder. Then Faded Jeans DI was sponged over the dress form and stamped over the sentiment. The whitewash stamping was done on the background panel. It's the very subtle design stamped with the Fabulous Flourishes stamp. I did remember to take a photo of it this time before I covered it all up with embellishments.
I used Faded Jeans distress stain to color the jute ribbon and adhered a piece of Melissa Frances resin embellishment which I couldn't resist sponging with a bit of Vintage Photo DI. I rubbed some Snow Cap alcohol ink mixative over the scissors to coordinate them with the other embellies and finished it off with a couple of rusty hearts just dabbed a bit with gesso on my finger. The tribud applique was white and I painted it with a bit of Faded Jeans distress stain and that's it.
Now hopefully you will drop by Frilly and Funkie to see what the Frilly gals are doing this week. We'd love to have you join in our challenge too!
