CASE It Again!

I'm back for week two of the current Frilly and Funkie challenge.  This week our Funkie team is CASE-ing their favorite tag from my 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.  For my design team piece, I chose the week #5 tag to CASE.  Using a jumbo manila tag from my boutique, I started by randomly stamping images from Wendy Vecchi's Blooming Art set using Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters plus Peacock Feathers for the flower.

Then, using the new Mini Ink Blending Tool, which I love and highly recommend, I sponged Shabby Shutters and Peacock Feathers DI all over the tag, edging it with Vintage Photo DI.  Once that was done, I spritzed the tag with Perfect Pearls mist in Perfect Pearl. In Ranger Jet Black archival ink,  I stamped the stitching stamp twice, once right side up and once upside down to make a double row and topped it off with a few flat back rhinestones.

The Ornate Frame was cut from corrugated cardboard, the center was cut again out of white CS, stamped in Peacock Feathers with the gingham stamp from Nature's Art and then blended on Shabby Shutters DI.  The wildflower from Approved Art was stamped in Jet Black Archival.  The sentiment is from the Wendy Vecchi Blooming Art set

The flower is crinoline, die cut with the Tattered Florals die and stained with Scattered Straw distress stain, topped with a small rhinestone center from my shop.  I cut some Spring Greenery die cuts from kraft CS, edged them with Vintage Photo and used them with my flower.  A small strip of black was cut with the Vintage Lace die and used to embellish the bottom of the tag.

The tag was finished off with a small bronze dragonfly charm to which I added a few tiny rhinestones plus a piece of black lace tied with a Scattered Straw stained piece of rayon seam binding.

I hope you will play along with us over at Frilly and Funkie.  The challenge is open for another week.

LOVE that background! Blending over the stamped florals has softened and aged the whole thing and the pattern border at the top is so clever. Love the way you've added little drops in between each flourish. Jenny x
