Tiddly Inks Challenge #29
Here is my creation for this week:
I have used the following TI images:
I added bright orange glitter glue to her belt and hem of her dress and set her aside to dry.
I then colored in and trimmed out the Fairy House. I then added bits of the same orange glitter glue to the flowers on the house and a tiny drop of Crystal Glaze to the window and I set this piece aside to dry.
My base is SU! More Mustard measuring at 6 x 5.75. I took a scrap of Kraft and "bound" the fold to make it look like a story book.
My background is also SU! DP stitched around the perimeter with ivory thread. I then used a scrap of chocolate brown DP in the lower right hand corner as a visual anchor because of it's dark color.
I chose my sentiment from PTI "Live Your Bliss". It's one of my favorite stamps. I inked it up with Colorbox "Harbor Blue" ink, stamped it on a blue gingham scrap and heat set it. I also added flourishes on the corners of this scrap, inked in Pearlescent Poppy and heat set but the are a tad hard to see due to the house and princess.
I then was ready to piece everything together but my princess and house were not dry so I took my heat gun to them to speed up the drying process.
I piled everything onto my card base but there was something missing. I tried DP, ribbon, embellis...but nothing was jumping out at me. So I went to my "everything bin". It's an area on my desk where I keep bits of things like cool looking receipts, tags cut out of clothing, bottlecaps, dry cleaning slips or in this case a left over slip from the tailor!!!
I crumpled it up, took my Tim Holtz Vintage Tea Dye ink to it, added a scrap of sheer, copper colored ribbon to it and VOILA! that was what was missing!
I added Fiona and the house on 3-D adhesive, anchoring the whole piece with a crystally, heart frog embellishment in the lower right hand corner.
I hope you enjoy and have been inspried!! Please come play along with us at the TI challenge blog!!!
