Chipboard and Metal

Hello and happy Wednesday.  I'm back today with the Frilly side of things at Frilly and Funkie.  The lovely and talented Marjie Kemper is our hostess this fortnight and her challenge to use is to use chipboard (snowflake) and metal (rusty bell) on our projects.  For my frilly piece, I Photoshopped two vintage images together for my focal piece and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo DI.  The layers were embossed with the Tim Holtz Snowflurries texture fade, the white one sponged with Vintage Photo again and the red one, which was embossed on kraft core paper, was sanded with my TH Sanding Grip. The bottom red layer was dry brushed with gesso.  I followed Mojo Monday sketch 267 and ran a piece of sanded kraft core cut with the Vintage Lace die across the top of my vintage image per the sketch.  A bit of rayon seam binding was dyed with red reinker and became the base for a rusty bell dry brushed with gesso and a tiny white Venise tribud that I handpainted red.  I layered a rosette and two snowflakes together and topped it with another red-dyed tribud as my finisher.
That's it.  I know it's super simple but I'm up to my ears in moving details plus keeping up with a 10% off sale at The Funkie Junkie so time is very short these days.  Here's the merged vintage image as a freebie if you want it.

I hope you will check out the beautiful chipboard and metal samples over at Frilly and Funkie.
Thanks for stopping by and as always, heartfelt thanks for your comments and good wishes on my upcoming move!

These products used to make this card can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Everything is 10% off through November 23rd.

So beautiful, Linda! Love how you stitched down the red snowflake embossed panel. That image is adorable, but that snowflake rosette is over the top fabulous. In fact, it is the nicest one I have seen! Love this!
