Hi! Today I'm very excited to share with you that I am honored to have been invited to join along with the entire talented Frilly and Funkie DT as their guest designer for the current challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog site! Thank you ladies for inviting me to join along in the fun!

The current Challenge Theme is: Boy oh Boy! 

Description: Create a vintage or shabby chic project with a man in mind. Let's see those male themed creations come to life.

For my sample, I was inspired to create my dear husband Scott a rusty textured steampunk tag to remind him how much I love him.
To get the rusty look, I applied a variety of ColourArte Acrylic Silks over all the embellishments and textured background that had been painted with Black Gesso.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Again, I'd like to thank the ladies for inviting me to join along in the fun! Please be sure to visit the Frilly and Funkie site for loads of inspiration from the DT and to join along in the fun!

Be Sweet ;)
