I have an honor and privilege to announce my Guest Designer spot at Frilly and Funkie for their current challenge: "Oh the Places You'll Go!" I earned this opportunity by winning their Boy oh Boy challenge with this card.
Host of the challenge is Zoe and description of the challenge follows:
Create a vintage or shabby chic project with travel as the central theme.
Think planes, trains, automobiles, ships, maps, globes.
Well, I thought...planes, trains, automobiles...why not hot air balloon???
And noow, here is what I created as an inspiration contribution:
I started off with vellum doily die cuts, decorated them with tiny rhinestones and added a strip of lace ribbon on one side. Then I layered up various distress patterned cardstock pieces from my stash...and added some more lace ribbon. You can never have too much lace and ribbon!
The hot air balloon was cut out of vintage script cardstock to give it extra shabby vintage feel...I added some cotton rope and bling and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I painted the metal filigree pieces with Picket Fence Distress Paint to give them more of a shabby chic look.
The sentiment is Chitchat stickers from TH idea-ology.
I hope you will get inspired to join the Frilly and Funkie challenge now even more with this card of mine....
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
