Pastels & Pearls

Welcome to Funkie Wednesday!  Time for the Funkie part of the Frilly and Funkie DT to show off our take on the current challenge: Pastels and Pearls Challenge.    Nancy is hosting the challenge and she has given us the challenge to create any vintage or shabby chic project that features a pastel color palette and includes pearls. Those are the only guidelines. Other than that, the sky is the limit!

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

I tried to combine the pretty pastels with pearls and still have a few funkie details in the card.

My card started with an inky background mixing up different distress stain sprays and then adding a nice flicking of white paint over the background.

from there I started to play with stencils and white embossing paste.
I created this piece but haven't gotten a chance to finish the rest of it.
I then went on to emboss on another part of the paper but covered it with a stamped doily on tissue paper. I used white embossing powder on the image and then glued it over the stenciled background.
Then I cam back in and added some white highlights on the stenciling and around the edges to make it pop. I die cut a butterfly from a coordinating piece of cardstock.

I stamped the girls in the purple ink and put them under the dome in the brooch. I die cut tons of flowers in the same colors and accented them with tiny pearls.  I then stamped the beautiful sentiment from Impression Obsession - Wings and embossed it in white to make it pop.

Don't forget to check out the  Frilly and Funkie blog to see the rest of the Design Teams awesome creations. 

Have a fabulous day.
