Hi ya'll, I'm back for week #2 of the Frilly and Funkie challenge. Jenny is our host and she wants us to use our art this time to depict our dream vacation and the twist is that you must include a window in the piece. I decided to put my window in a suitcase or rather a vintage valise. I used an old designer paper I've had forever that is a collage of travel stickers and labels which I die cut with the Vintage Valise die and then I die cut a window using the Baroque Movers and Shapers die. The straps were cut with kraft core paper and run through the Bubble texture fade. I thought that would make them look like alligator leather but now that I am sitting here looking at the picture, it think it makes them look like they have some sort of pox marks - ug!
I liberated one of the Tim Holtz Travel ways stamp sets from my shop's inventory and randomly stamped a 6x6" piece of white CS, then sponged on Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge. I did some spritz and flick as well as some staining on it to grunge it up a bit. Then the edges were inked with Walnut Stain. The Eiffel Tower is an Artistic Outpost stamp. The panel was sponged with Stormy Sky and everything was stamped with Jet Black archival ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will drop by Frilly and Funkie to see the rest of the Funkie team's makes.
