This month at Frilly and Funkie the challenge is "Three is not a crowd"
Create a vintage or shabby chic project that includes three of something. Examples of three of something could be three different patterned papers, three colours, three layers, three flowers, three bows - the list goes on. This would be a perfect time to use some of the new supplies you received for Christmas or to make space in your stash by using up old supplies. Just remember to think in multiples of three.
Here is where i go with funkie my group of three is RIBCAGES. I love ribcages not sure why but there you go. I started with chipboard cards 3.5"x5"...
Here is a ribcage viewed from the back so you also get the shoulder blade. Glue chipboard onto card, paint with white gesso this seals the edges around chipboard, next paint with light lime (the color is hard to see in this pic) acrylic paint, finally dry brush with a dakrer lime. Next I sanded card, ink with vintage photo ink the ink will settle into the sanded portions, embossed the whole card with clear embossing powder, dust off some so you get a pebbled look in areas. Almost there... paint entire card with Art Deco antiquing paint brown- wipe off excess, the brown settles in where the embossing powder is pebbled. Finally paint with patina green antiquing cream wipe off excess- the final look is old and worn.

Treasured Memories they always have fun accessories. Added a wing to chipboard ribcage/back this is embossed with Stampendous Aged Marine embossing enamel- this color is FAB.
This was a fun project, I made another one in blue tones (that's for next weeks reveal) once they were completed I put in a couple frames I have been wondering what to do with.
