On the Runway Wendy Style

Hi everyone, we are back On the Runway again with the Funkie week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge.  Cec is still our hostess and we are to make a project in vintage or shabby chic style that depicts sewing or fashion.  For the Funkie week of the challenge, our designers stay a bit on the grungy side of vintage.  I opted to use a couple of Wendy Vecchi stamps and stencils to create my tag.  

I started with a jumbo manila tag and blotted up some Weathered Wood ink with it and added more staining with Vintage Photo.  I stamped the fancy stitching edge from The Beauty of Art set in Jet Black Archival and did some second and third generation stamping with the Vintage Mesh stamp.  Then Weathered Wood was sponged on through the Dots and Stripes Border stencil.  

The dress form (A Form of Art set) and the lacy panel (Sentimental Art) behind it were stamped with Weathered Wood and edged with Vintage Photo.  The sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo.  The strips were sponged randomly with both Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo.   I cut it with pinking shears in keeping with the sewing theme.  And also in keeping with the sewing theme, I unearthed my sewing machine and did some stitching on the tag.  

My frame was cut from chipboard with the Ornate Frame die, sponged with Weathered Wood and edged with Vintage Photo.  Then 2 coats of UTEE were applied to give it the deep glossy shine.  

The old fashioned high top shoe and bag are from the Sweet and Small charm collection I sell in the store.  I took two of the barrel beads I also sell and glued them end to end to hang the charms from and threaded the dyed seam binding through them before tying the bow.  








These products used to make this tag are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique where most name brand products are always 20% below MSRP.

I always love how you take Wendy Vecchi's products in a vintage direction. The stencilling and stamping combine beautifully and that frame absolutely completes it. Jenny x
