Life is full of coincidences. I was lying in bed the morning listening to my favourite Internet radio station Nostalgie ( hits of the 60s 70s and 80s ) yes I really am that old. So there I am,busy reading the blog feed for the sixth challenge over at the Funkie Junkie challenge a little light bulb went off inside my head, cogs whirred...it was just like the old Wurlitzer! I knew in a flash what I wanted to do for this card: the doily,Snowflake, gold/brown. Golden brown was the song that was playing, something was trying to tell me this was the way to go!
I've used a 4x6 card and part of a cake doily. I won't even attempt to remember how long I've had it in my stash (I've an awful feeling it goes back to our years in the Middle East when I used to bake!)
The centre section od the card has been stamped using 2 snowflake peg stamps (rubber tapestry) in vintage photo & antique linen inks. The corners have been done in a similar manner using 2 star stamp pegs this time only using the vintage photo disagree ink but some of the stars have had their centres filled in with a gold pen.
As I'm sure you can see, it was difficult to take photos....lack of sunshine today & glare from the gold doily :-(
I then coloured a white doily with some distress stain in vintage photo & tarnished brass. I also gave it a spritz with a homemade iridescent spray (pinky pearl)
The snowflake is a Sizzix die "snowflake rosette". Once pleated & assembled, I've edged it with more vintage photo & the topper with the sentiment has had the same treatment. I've used a free sentiment stamped & embossed in gold in the centre.
Time for this one to be linked to Linda's boutique - the sponsors www.thefunkiejunkie.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/challenge-12-tags-of-christmas-funkie.html
I'm also going to enter this one over at " Less is more" as they are doing a card in non traditional colours.
