Memory's of a time gone by

 Hello Again Crafty Friends!

It's that time again! Time for a new Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge

The theme is all about "Time" for this one

Check out the challenge details HERE if you want to play along. 

I chose to create a vignette box of captured memories for my piece. 

Here you can see how the distressing began with a lot of alcohol ink, grit paste, crackle paste, and distress crayons!

Close up so you can see how I used mushroom alcohol ink on the pocket watch, pen nib, and chip quote. You can also see the grit and crackle paste I used. I used mustard seed paint on the star, and collage medium to glue it to that milk tab. 

Close up of the 3 D embossed pieces I added to the inside. I used black soot paint for the distressing on these. This was the crackle before I added the crayon. 
(I did use collage medium over the crackle after it dried, because it did not want to stick to the wood)

I blended with a paintbrush and a little water after scribbling on the top of the crackle

Snarky, Sassy, and Silly Fun!

Hello Again Crafty Friends!!

This week I am the host over on the frilly and funkie challenge blog! 
The theme I chose was Snarky, silly, and sassy summer fun!

I hope you will hop over to check out all the inspiration from my other team mates, as well as join us!
(you know there is a chance to win a $25 gift card to The Funkie Junkie Boutique!!)

Ok, for my piece I chose to combine 2 of my favorite things, Snark and grunge! 
I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do!

I started by creating my background using a variety of distress oxide spray stains as well as regular antique linen spray stain. I then used various stamps from the 3 sets you see above. (I love these so much! they get a lot of use!!)

I created the next layer using the new Tim Holtz stencil cards, an ideology layers "collector", and more spray stains

I just love this grungy goodness!

For my sassy gal, I chose a paper doll, and wings. I painted her using the distress embossing glaze. 
Can you tell how much I love these wings (I think this makes 3 post in a row with them...I seriously tried not to, but they were just so perfect!

Of course I had to finish the whole thing off with a sassy quote! 
I chose to use one from Dyan's "full blown circus" set. It was a tough decision on which to use they are all so good!

If you made it this far, thank you for visiting!! 
Let me know which quote you like best from that set and your thoughts.

Have an awesome week!!
Happy creating!

Feeling like Royalty

Hello Again Crafty Friends!!

Are you ready for a new Funkie Junkie challenge?
Today starts the new challenge "I'm feeling like Royalty" with our host Suzz.

Join us HERE for a peek at more inspiration and to play

I started by building up layers on a card base.
I used distress ink in walnut stain ink on the top 2 layers.

To create the top layers I used a Tim Holtz paper doll, one of the sets of transparent wings from Tim Holtz, and created a crown from a scrap of gold paper from Tim Holtz (which I embossed with the typeface 3d embossing folder). The gold belt was created with gold embossing powder. I used a retired Tim Holtz die to create my pink oval base from kraft core paper. Then, I hand cut a black boarder to add a base. 

(also I colored my paper doll with distress ink (dusty concord-then wiped to lighten) and alcohol markers (for rosy cheeks)

I used distress collage medium to glue everything together.

Next, I layered some of my Tim Holtz chipboard pieces.

I used pop dots, to add another layer of flowers, and more pop dots under my base.
The base layer for under my topper was created with the Tim Holtz basket weave 3d embossing folder.
I used, rustic wilderness distress ink to add depth. I spritzed everything with water to lighten it up and get it blended out.

I added the Tim Holtz foiled stickers to finish everything off.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.
