J is for Junk!!

Hello and welcome back to a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers ~~ J is for Junk which means do some some odd non crafty item on your card, recycle or upcycle something. My hubby has a metal detector and has found some really odd things on the beach, some really good stuff but lots of junk. So I dug through a little pile of "junk" and found something that I could use.


First the little metal bar says "Aqua Funky" so when I saw it I thought of the Sunshine Designs set of 4 Funky Flowers so I coloured everything Aqua. This is an ATC (artist trading card) 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I coloured the flower then masked it with an oval and sponged peacock feathers distress oxide ink on it then spritzed it with shimmer spray.


Close up of the plate (there is a couple in hubby's stash one is baby phat)

Since it's not usual that you make one ATC I continued and made the other three funky flowers into cards too.




Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the Main Blog and check out what junk the rest of the design team have used and don't forget to read the rules if you plan on entering our challenge.

For some reason I can't leave comments from my phone :(
I love those flowers and how you coloured them up...pretty and funky.
I also like that you framed them in the ovals.

Hi, Barbara. I just discovered the Snarky Sisterhood blog tonight, so I'm exploring. Your junk ATC and other cards came out beautifully. But I do have an affinity for aqua! I love that color and your color combo is fabulous!
