Let's Do it Again

Hello again!  It's time for a new Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge.  The talented Sara Emily is hosting and she is challenging us to "Let's Do it Again".  Here is how she describes the challenge:

"Have you ever made something that you wish you could do over? Perhaps it was a technique you tried and didn't get the results you were hoping for. Maybe you didn't have just the right product you wanted to make your project just perfect. Or maybe a friend asked you to make something like it for them. Now's your chance for a do-over. Choose one of your own posted vintage or shabby chic projects and do it over with a bit of a twist. Be sure to link back to the post of the project you are making over and tell us why you wanted to do it a second time and what's different about it this time. We like to see your entry be in the vintage or shabby chic style we prefer. "

I took a scan through some of my recent posts and I found this cute bag I created in February.  I liked it when I created it but when I looked at it again, I wanted to spin it a little differently.

This had me thinking about using some of the same pieces and how to spin them up a little differently.

I decided to replace the bird with a butterfly but stick with the idea of wings. :)  I wanted to try an idea of piecing together the filmstrip and cutting the butterfly from the filmstrip.

I taped the film strip to a sheet of acrylic.  I die cut the butterflies from the filmstrip.  I then decided the filmstrip needed a coat of the white acrylic paint on the backside to make it pop.

After that I stamped script over the front with a StazOn ink.  I inked the edges with the same ink to make it pop.

 I die cut the clock from kraft paper and painted it black.  I then splattered the background with distress Oxide spray and died the twine to match.

I cut apart the quote and inked the edges with black ink.  I added rub-ons on the front and added splatter all over all the card.

Go check out the design team's fabulous re-dos and join us in the challenge.   The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date  at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, 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.

  4. So brilliant to use the filmstrip on the butterfly that way!!! It makes you want to look at the details even more closely and works perfectly with the clock in the background. As ever you are so inspiring!

  5. I'm always fascinated by the way your creative mind works, Suzz! Love the filmstrip butterfly! Painting the back with white acrylic really makes it work! So clever and absolutely lovely!
