there's no time to waste for Frilly and Funkie DT
well it is time for the Funkie team to add their time inspired pieces to the Frilly and Funkie blog...for my theme There is no time to waste. There is still a week to play along and make sure you pop here and see all the fab Dt inspiration. I was so tempted to go for steampunk and grunge it up but decided to go for soft and gentle, delicate piece. So here is my time inspired creation:
I started by cutting the fab new pocket watch die out of greyboard ...and cream card for the base and then using the movers and shapers circles... I cut three layers with the centre removed. (hope that makes sense!) I painted the top layer with antique linen distress paint , giving it two coats. when dry I added a good layer of rock candy, clear....leaving it to do its magic crackle thing!
The flowers were cut from cardstock and over stamped with fabulous flourish stamp in coffee archival...and then dunked I clear UTEE in the melt pot. This makes them sturdy and helps them to keep their shape. I added some pearls for centres.
The leaves...were cut from the tattered leaves die , from clear shrink plastic and then dipped in the clear UTEE , where they shrink and coat at the same time...very cool!! The inside was cream card, lightly coloured with antique linen distress ink and then I stamped the papillon background using frayed burlap distress ink. I added an idea-ology pen nib and a heart made from pearl UTEE in a mold , using my melt pot and a twirl of wire. Thanks Hels for getting me back into melt pot mode!!
