The Funkie Junkie Boutique, you should check out all the FANTASTIC new products. We're busy every day trying to get pre-orders out as the new products arrive.
Despite that, I managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafty time. This card was made for the new challenge kicking off at Frilly and Funkie this week. Cec is our host and she lives in the frozen north - Canada! Cec is dreaming of a tropical get-away and is challenging us to make something holiday/vacation themed. I didn't have a particular destination in mind and I love vintage travel labels so I dragged out an old SU stamp set and stamped the background with a variety of archival inks. It was a little bright for the vintage piece I had in mind so I took an ink blending tool and applied a light coat of Vintage Photo DI to the entire panel. Then I distressed the edges. Now I like it!
The tag is an older Wendy Vecchi stamp of a B&O Railroad ticket. I added one of the new KAISERCRAFT laser cut wood embellishments that came into the shop this week and topped it off with a handmade flower. I stamped two more of the travel icons on white CS, distressed them and die cut them. The All Aboard image was cut with one of the Tim Holtz Labels thinlits and the tag was cut what a very old Spellbinders die. I added a few remnant rub phrases using the new Tim Holtz remnant rub tool. If you haven't tried it and are a fan of remnant rubs, you must get yourself one of those. They work so beautifully for putting down the remnant rubs. I have a few left in the shop and have about 60 more coming in by Friday.
A wire pin was used to hang the tag and a tiny heart shaped red crystal. I had been cutting up ribbon remnants to send as samples to my design team and as I cut that beautiful new red plaid one, I thought it would look wonderful on this card to get just a bit more of a pop of red. The fiigree corners are a daily new addition to the shop also. I used a but of gesso to rub over each on with my finger. It just adds an nice shabby element.
I hope you like my little get away card. You can find loads more inspiration over at Frilly and Funkie. Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments.
