Guest Designer at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hello everyone,

I am thrilled that I was given the opportunity to  guest design for Funkie Junkie Boutique!
My guest appearance is for their current challenge with the theme Positively Pensive!
Here is the description: 
The challenge is to thoughtfully use a ballpoint pen on your project.
You can doodle, journal, sketch or trace an outline using any color ballpoint pen on your art.
Create a Vintage or Shaby Chic project with ink from a ballpoint pen and if it isn't obvious how it was used, make sure to tell us in your post!
And here is my inspiration contribution:

The way I used a ballpoint pen is to outline parts of the diamond shapes that were created with Finnabair Harlequin stencil and texture paste, doodling around the embossed edge of oval that mannequin was placed on, and some more at the corners of the stenciled background.

I added some hand made flowers that I covered with Gesso to give them that rustic look and a seam binding ribbon for this crinkled shabby bow.

I added a little hand rolled rose to this Prima Shabby Chic Mannequin.

Here is a closeup of the ballpoint outlines and doodling. In the background you can see another layer diecut that I embellished with pink liquid pearls.

Another look at the finished card and the box that it comes with.

I hope you will join this fun challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and stay safe...
