Funky Flair Inspiration Challenge

Hi & Welcome

Just when you think the weather is cooling, we are hit by another heat wave.  Bring on winter!!!!  Fotuntely I was able to finish my page before it hit, now I just need it to cool back down so I can re-enter the craft room.   Soooooo neeed airrrr con!!!!

This was the Challenge, Created by Eve Rae, she always creates not only a beautiful colour palette but a yummy mood board as well to get your creativity flowing.

February's Challenge

We also have to use one of Eve's gorgeous Flairs!  Since I only had one left I decided that I need to alter it to fit within my page, below is the before shot.

This is what I created!!!

The picture is of my daughter on one of our High Tea dates, this one is at the Samford Hotel in Brisbane.  Its one of faves and its so tranquil looking out over the Botanical Gardens.

Close ups show my adorable little dragonfly that I have die cut from this gorgeous felt that I recently purchased whilst up at Toowoomba.  You can also see I have used a trasparency to draw the eye away from the person sitting in the background.

Here is my close up on my altered flair, I did try to ink but unfortunately I didn't have the right colour in a stazon and nothing else wanted to take.  My alternate was to use a rubon and I loved how it turned out.

Another shot from a different angle so you can see the layers, stencil and stitching details.

Kaiser - Paper, blooms & transparency
Fancy Pants - rubons
BlueFern - Chipboard & paper
The Crafters Workshop - Templates
Prima - Ink & blooms
Memory Box - Stencil
Tim Holtz - Distress embossing powder & pistachio distress ink
Other - Doily, gesso, textured paste & ribbon
