So Delicate

 Time for another beautiful challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!  This time Jenny is challenging us with So Delicate.  Here is how she describes the challenge:

 "Although it's not always evident in my projects, I have a real passion for delicate laces, fragile flowers, fine stitching, intricate artwork and exquisite architecture. For this challenge create something delicate or a vintage/shabby chic project that features delicate things in it."

I have been wanting to play some with the beautiful background stamps from the Tapestry set.  I decided to create a series of ATC's using the stamp and embossing on vellum and a paper bag. 

The first ATC has strips stamped on vellum and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then strips were ripped and attached to a white base. 

Then layers of flowers were attached with a big bow of twine.  To finish it the word Love was stamped in speckled egg and attached with a few mirror hearts. 

The next ATC used an ivory embossing powder and vellum to stamp a background panel and the butterfly.  

The ATC has a big ivory bow tied to the middle and the butterfly was cut out and attached behind the bow.  It couldn't shine without me cutting it in half and strategically placing it behind the bow.  A textured resin heart with a rub on of the word love was placed in the center. 

For my final ATC I switched things up and stamped on a piece of a brown paper bag.

I partially stamped the tapestry and embossed with ivory embossing powder.  Then a layer of die cuts and a metal heart were added for a focal point. 

Come share your delicate art with us!   The Design Team will choose their four top picks who will receive badges to display on their blog in recognition of their outstanding contributions and one overall winner will receive the $25 gift certificate to go on a spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. Suzz, these are all so beautiful, and I love how you've used the tapestry stamp with embossing powder on each. Love them all but the one with the butterfly truly melts my heart! This is the prettiest thing I've ever seen! Thank you for your inspiration--lucky me, I have both these sets, so I can give this a try!

  2. Suzz your projects are all such delicate works of art. As ever you've complimented the backgrounds with your choice of embellishments so perfectly xx
