 Hi!  Time for a new challenge!  Cec is hosting this time and she has challenged us to Celebrate!  Here is how she described the challenge: 

"Your challenge is to create a shabby chic or vintage project to celebrate someone or something special. Since celebrations are happy occasions, your project should be made with lots of happy, bright colours. Keep your dull or neutral colours to a minimum please because as winter approaches we will have lots of that naturally so your bright colours must be predominant."


I have to admit I struggled a bit with the bright colors.  I finally decided to create a masterboard background with a mix of colors. 

Here is a bit of the background cut to a tag.  I started by applying the embossing paste through the Ironwork stencil.  I then spritzed and sprayed a mix of reds, purple, pink, orange and yellow all together.  I added some shimmery sprays and then finished it with a salt layer to pool the inks. 

After it dried I die cut a large amount of tissue paper tattered florals and gave them the same treatment.  Inky sprays, salt and shimmery spray all over the flowers and then let them dry.  I then took the flowers and double layered them with a glue dot in the center to make them scrunch up like flowers. 

I traced a heart and used it as my guidance to create my floral heart. 

I hope you enjoyed my celebration of love! Come join us and play along!  The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date here 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. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.




  1. FAB-U-LOUS!! I love the texture you created with both the background and the very clever heart. Your bright colour struggle turned out very well. Hugs!

  2. You nailed this bold color combination even though brights are our of your comfort zone. Your colorful and textured background wonderfully show off all those Tattered Florals that make up that amazing heart! This is truly inspiring, Suzz! Hugs!

  3. I don't think I'd have been able to cut up that magnificent tag Suzz, but having done it you teamed it beautifully with that clever floral heart. Your choice of colours is perfect for this challenge xx
