Hello everyone and Happy Hump Day to you. I can't believe it's Wednesday already and we are practically on the downhill slide to another weekend. The time seems to be streaking by. I almost missed having time to make something for the Funkie side of the Anything But a Card with a Twist, the Frilly and Funkie challenge that is being hosted this week by Sue Carrington. We are supposed make some sort of craft item with a hidden pocket or compartment.
For my hidden area, I decided to use the small kraft sleeves that I sell at The Funkie Junkie Boutique - I know, not very original, but I've been so busy that I never developed a design for this week. I just sat down about 9:00 p.m. and started brainstorming.
I started with a jumbo tag and did the Marbled Stain technique first with Rusty Hinge and Brushed Pewter and then with Crushed Grape and Brushed Pewter. Then I embossed it with the Spooky Words Texture Fade. I love the way it came out with the blended colors and the wonderful shine from the Distress Metallic stains. Next I stamped both the outside of the envelopes and the inside. The flowers were left overs from this project and I used a TH Custom Fastener to create the spider brad. The letters are chipboard covered with canvas, cut with the Word Play die and stained with Rusty Hinge DS.
Here you can see the hidden tickets that are inside of the sleeves. I secured the tickets with mini binder clips and connected them with dyed seam binding. The BOO became a tiny banner.
The following product used to make this tag can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
