It's that Funky time again this fortnight, and this time at Frilly & Funkie the uber talented Marjie of She Who Stamps & Scraps (See her below!) is hosting. Marjie wants to see "Chipboard and Metal". We're looking for these two elements on the project of your choice. You can use branded chipboard pieces or even cut up a cereal box. Choose items from the hardware store or simple household metals like staples or paperclips. Ranger's foil sheets would work too. The options are endless! We want you to be creative and can't wait to see what you share with us.
You still have a week left to participate, and if you need a little inspiration or even a lot, please visit the other Design Team's blogs.

|I made these ATC's for a trip I just took to New York City for Debby Schuh's (The Memory Bee) tour and class! I visited with old friends, made new ones, and even had a surprise visit with Tim and Mario! What a fabulous time, and there will be many more pictures later. I even actually got to meet She Who Stamps and Scraps herself, Mrs. Marjie Kemper in the flesh...finally!!!|
Also included is a mini tutorial on how to mask and stamp using Alcohol Inks.
|Here is my chipboard and my metal!|
|I adhered the Metal Foil to the chipboard and cut them to ATC sized pieces. I stamped Tim's City Scape image onto the left over metal foil backing, cut it out, and taped the bottom portion of it to my craft sheet to use as a mask.|
|I slipped the metal card inside the tape image all the way to the bottom edge, and then started pouncing on Alcohol Ink to make a sky. I used a few colors of blue, so many of the cards are different.|
|I removed the card and then stamped the city scape image in Jet Black Archival in the spot left blank, which was now an outline of the city! So cool!|
|I stamped a bee with Ranger's Alcohol Blending Solution first, to remove some of the Alcohol Ink for coloring purposes as seen below.|
|I stamped the bee again, but this time using Jet Black Archival. You can now see the blank spots were the Alcohol Ink was removed.|
|I stamped a Statue of Liberty image on the city scape in Jet Black as well.|
|I used Tim's Alcohol Ink Palette Technique to color in parts of the city scape and Lady Liberty. I love the results!|
|I used Snow Cap Pigment Ink to stamp snowflake images around the town, although it didn't snow on us while we were there...the weather was fabulous!|
|I just love my Funkie Sista! Mother Linda would be proud!|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
