Alter it ! Frilly and Funkie Challenge
The Frilly and Funkie website has a new challenge. It is called "Alter It!" I love any type of challenge that involves recycling. Today I recycled a very cute little pink shiny gift bag that someone gave me a long time ago. First I used an old paint chip that was a Limoncello color (ie: my kitchen), it was a large chip measuring 4" x 6". I ran this through my Vagabond machine using the Alterations Patchwork Texture Fades. Then I rubbed Ranger's Tattered Rose ink over the raised image and poured clear embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. I matted the yellow paint chip to some polka dot paper, G45 circus paper. I cut and glued a turquoise strip at the middle of the chip. I cut a shaped a pinwheel out of G45 circus paper and glued a bottle cap in the middle. I stamped a face using black Archival ink and clear, heat embossed it. I colored it in with copic inks. So in the end I altered a gift bag, a bottle cap and some paint chips (I did buy the paint just in case you were wondering).
