Frilly & Funkie Challenge

Have you seen the new website "Frilly & Funkie"?  I love the vintage style that is promoted there.  They are even offering a discount until the end of this month on product that you purchase from their store.  You might want to check it out.  For my first entry to their weekly challenge I must admit I lean toward the Funkie style.  I made a tag, of course, since I'm participating in the Tim Holtz class this week.  I now have a lot of tags with background inks on them just waiting to be embellished.    This tag has been stamped with the Diesel Punk stamps by Artistic Outpost (another of my latest crushes).  The die used for the gears is Tim Holtz's "Steampunk", the metal gears are also Tim's.  I cut the wings off of some of Tim's butterflies and glued them to the driver's shoulders.  The red in his scarf is Copic pen R29.  The bow is made from torn gauze that has been spritzed with watered down Wild Honey re-inkers.  My best wishes to the success of the new website Frilly and Funkie!

Love the little diesel punk angel and the gears are the perfect embellishment. I have only made it through day 5 of Creative Chemistry and haven't had time to play yet.
