I have a new favorite distress color - Milled Lavender! I don't know why but everything I ever think I don't like from the Tim Holtz line and then I try it, I love it. No exception here. I never opened anything Milled Lavender because the label is so pale and almost colorless. But I needed a lavender shade to dye the seam binding we used for a thank you kit at the shop last week and I opened a Milled Lavender spray stain, used it to dye the seam binding and wow! We all LOVED the way it looked. So this week when I made my Frilly piece for the kick off of our new challenge at Frilly and Funkie, I just had to use this lovely shabby pinky purple shade.
I started with an A2 size piece of white CS and embossed it with an order Tim Holtz texture fade. I sprayed it with Milled Lavender distress spray stain, dried it with my heat tool and applied Rock Candy Crackle paint. It curled up because it was just card stock and not chipboard. Flattening out when dry, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo. I used the Wendy Vecchi gingham stamp from Nature's Art and Milled Lavender DI to stamp the backing panel for the card. The card shell was white CS and I sponged the edges with sort of a blend of a little Mowed Lawn and a lot of Bundled Sage. (I guess I should have used more green. The green looks really washed out in the photo.) Then I stamped Tim's cracked stamp around the parameter in Vintage Photo for a little interest.
A tag was cut from a pretty vintage image I downloaded from the Internet. The triple loop bow and the tiny Venise lace flower appliqués were stained with Milled Lavender. My "Hello" and the Tim Holtz gumdrop were both rubbed with Ink Gold Old Silver and then gone over with Old Gold.
I used a gorgeous Spellbinders die to cut the lovely heart filigree. I used a tiny flower created from the Tattered Flowers decorative strip die and some tiny filigree leaves to create a corner element. The filigree metal leaves were also rubbed with Inka Gold Old Silver (I can't seem to get enough of that stuff!).
I had lots of frilly fun making my card for this week's challenge. Hope to see you playing long with us over at Frilly and Funkie.
