Haunted Halloween

Happy Wednesday!  Time for a funkie challenge reveal on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog!  The challenge this time is "Haunted Halloween" hosted by none other than the talented Jenny Marples!

Here is how she describes the challenge:

" It's time to get your freak on and go all out for Halloween. We want to see your ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night. It's going to be spooktacular!!!"

How can you resist that!  Especially with Halloween just around the corner.

I have been waiting to use the new Mr. Bones set from Stampers Anonymous and pulled out the skull to ink up first!

I have so many different backgrounds laying around from various projects that I try to use them whenever I can.  This particular scrap was for a project for my daughter and she didn't like the effect.  I kind of thought Day of the Dead and would work well with Mr. Bones.

I added a touch of script on the top half of the page with the stamp inked up once and stamped many times to get the uneven faint script.

I then stamped Mr. Bones and embossed him in black embossing powder.  I added highlights with a gold gel pen.

I then stamped the banner and the circle frame on white cardstock with black ink.  They also were embossed with black embossing powder.

I used a leftover rosette from my witch's wand project.  I stamped the number 31 using gold ink and outlined with a watercolor pencil. I stamped the circle around the numbers and cut out with a die.

When I had the top half of the card laid out I realized I needed something on the bottom. Lucky for me I had a ton of remnant rubs for halloween with the different sized spiders which creepily crawl along the bottom half of my card.

I hope this has inspired you to get your haunt on!  Come play along with us!  The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team!

Happy haunting!

Just My Type

 Hello!  Welcome back!  Today is Funkie Time on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.  The Funkie side of the team is sharing their delightful and awesome projects for the current challenge: "Just My Type"  

The current challenge is hosted by the extremely talented Jenny and this is how she describes the challenge:

"As a trained touch typist I love vintage typewriters. I love the way they look and sound and the font they create. For this challenge create a vintage or shabby chic project and include a typewriter, typewriter keys, typeface."

I knew right away I wanted to use the Stampers Anonymous Inventor 1 stamps.  I pulled out a ledger book in my stash to decorate to capture notes and measurements for a project I have going on.

 I inked up some white cardstock using the Ranger Distress Oxides (Antique Linen & Ground Espresso).  I splattered, sponged and sprayed water to get a mixed distress effect.

I then used the ledger stencil to add a hint of brown ledger lines over the background.  I dug into my extensive collection of ephemera and found this lovely lady who reminded me of a secretary and a fantastic catalogue card from the library.

I stamped the old fashioned type writer over the back of one of the cards and layered them into the background.

I stamped the space bar along the bottom and then cut out the letters from the typewriter stamp to add as glossy letters.

On the inside I used the wallpaper pages to add a hint of colour and pattern.

 And on the back side I continued with the library them and stamped the dates and columns and overlaid them with some pretty remnant rub-ons.

Now I have a fun little ledger to capture my notes for this project which is both functional and whimsical!

On The Farm

Happy Wednesday!  Time for another great challenge from Frilly and Funkie!  The Funkie side of the team is sharing their art for the All Creatures Great and Small challenge hosted by our new DT member Maggi!  Welcome Maggi!

Maggi describes the challenge as:

"I've chosen one of my favorite subjects as the focus of this challenge, animals. They delight us in so many ways; perhaps a trip to the zoo with the kids has made you smile. Maybe you have fur-babies that are a big part of your life. My fur-babies are my children and hold the top spot in the hierarchy of my home!
For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic project that is centered around animals. It could be your pets or a vintage photo. Could be an animal you fear, spiders anyone??? Eeeek!!!! No humans please, just animals on your project, otherwise anything goes."

This had me thinking about all kinds of different animals and the Frilly Design Team's projects gave me even more inspiration to think about.  I meandered around in my ideas until I decided to pull out the On The Farm stamps to kick off my project.

I love the animal silhouettes on these stamps and used them to inspire both of my cards.  I stamped out the image of the cow and then cut them out to  use as a base image for the cards.

I ended up covering one cow in design tape and sponging the other cow with a nice rich brown dye ink.

I stamped, I inked, I taped and then layered.  I started one card and then which switch over to the next card and back and forth until I ended up with two divine bovine cards! 

The backgrounds were inked up with a mix of ground espresso dye ink and worn lipstick paint. I watered both down and dabbed the background to pick up a hint of pink. 

I stamped over the layers with ledgers, words, and text using the brown archival ink.  I added remnant rub-ons positioned after I had determined where my main items were going to be placed. 

I used some ephemera to give my cows a little fancy wreath to wear.  I mixed up some stamping on the background from the same stamp set as well as a few other stampers anonymous sets. 

You need to check out the Design Team's projects as they are all fabulous!  Don't forget to play along as the winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot  at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. In addition, the Design Team will select three further outstanding entries and those creators will receive a Top Pick badge to display on their blogs!
