Guest Design Team at Fussy & Fancy Challenge #184 Embellish It ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one, nearly the weekend. If all goes to plan this post should go live whilst I'm only half awake, lol. My Indigo Blu butterfly card was the lucky pick to be Guest Designer Team at Fussy & Fancy Challenge #180 Fussy & Fancy challenge so I am on their blog today, yipee, thank you so much, I am honoured and chuffed! Here is the project I created for the current Fussy and Fancy Challenge #184 Embellish It Challenge …
This is a 125mm square chipboard circle
I didn't have to worry about the depth!
Lots of lovely details
A final look
Luckily for me this also fits these Challenges
All Aboard for the Birthday Challenge Celebration
Emerald Creek Dares Challenge Splatters
MMW#23 AG optional twist mood board:
I was inspired by the cold of the blue
I used another chipboard circle to adhere strips of book paper onto using matt medium. When dry I added a layer of white gesso using a brayer, to get some texture. When dry I used my Lace Tim Holtz layering stencil and added texture paste through the stencil approximately in the centre of the circle. I left to dry and the next day I dripped alcohol inks onto the circle, adding splashes of alcohol ink blending fluid to encourage the colours to move and blend. I wanted the colours to look much more blended this time so I used more AI and more ink blending solution.
As the challenge is to 'Embellish It' I was able to use a lot of my embellishment stash. I got to play with my lovely mixed media supplies with chipboard, texture paste and colour lol! I have an inkling that this chipboard circle will be picked by my sister in law to be when I share these with family. I end up making more than I expect to especially these sort of projects so family gets to pick if they want anything from the pile I create every couple of months.
I really hope you'll pop on over to see what the lovely Designers have created, they are a mega talented lot and I am so honoured to have been ask to play along with them. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
