Sue Carrington - Stamping Sue Style
Tammy Roberts - Paperie Sweetness
Creative Chemistry 101 introduced, as well as reintroduced, me to many techniques. Two techniques that I have always loved, but have let fall by the wayside for a bit, are Blended Spritz and Flick and Wrinkle Free Distress. These two techniques are what first made me fall into Tim love. I made so many things using them, but then picked up some new techniques and forgot about them. I've had a reawakening though, and now I am misting water like crazy. I decided to use these to create my funkie card for the F&F's Design Team piece.
Frilly or Funkie, you can play along until next Tuesday. We will have two winners - one random pick will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique. And one favorite pick of the design team will receive a winner's badge to display on their blog. We can't wait to see your take on the challenge.
|I applied the two shades of blue Distress Ink to my craft mat and spritzed with water, then dredged my kraft card through it several times, drying between layers.|
|I diecut the Townscape out of manila paper, and colored the roofs and sidewalk with Black Soot Distress Marker. The houses were colored in with various Distress Inks.|
|I flicked water droplets onto the houses for a bleached effect.|
|I used the tag above as my centerpiece here. I tore the edges and inked them, added white lines to form a border, and then added the filigree corners that were distressed with Snow White Mixative.|
Designing this card made me feel like I was creating something along the lines of all those ultra cool art journals I'm seeing a lot. Although, I have not gone there yet, this card made me think about joining on in. It sure was fun!
I am also submitting this card to Simon Says Stamp & Show's challenge of "A Tim Technique", and Unruly Paper Arts Blogazine Reader Art Quest II for "Inky Backgrounds".
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
