Hello and welcome! I'm almost completely recovered from the broken arm, and am head over heels happy to be back in my craft room. It was so difficult to use my computer keyboard these last couple of months that I was rarely online. Now that I can type again I've been running around to y'all's blogs to get a peek at everything I've been missing. I have missed all of you beyond words!
I'm thrilled to be hosting our brand new 'Bountiful Harvest' challenge at The Frilly and Funkie Blog! It begins today and will continue for two weeks. Simply create any vintage or shabby chic project celebrating the bounty of the season in the rich hues of autumn. I can't wait to see your interpretation of the challenge!
At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Frilly and Funkie Blog . Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and inspiration from my fabulous teammates just click on the blog link above.
We recently returned from a week of fall leaf peeping in the Smoky Mountains. The stunning colors provided the inspiration for my card. Maja Design's 'Walking in the Forest' is the perfect paper collection to bring it to life.
The flowers, cheesecloth, and lace are hand stained using Tim Holtz distress sprays. The larger postcard is a digital image purchased from Etsy (a long, long, time ago). I wish I could provide a link to the seller but I no longer recall which shop I purchased it from. The smaller image is part of the paper collection.
Gesso and Distress Sprays are combined to add some random splatters to the top and bottom of the card. Last but not least is a twine bow (because I adore bows)!
