Welcome to today's Guest Designed, Shilpa!

Today we welcome Shilpa of Neon Diary as our Guest Designer. Shilpa was the DT winner of the 'All About Wendy' challenge and was therefore invited to join us for a Guest Designer spot.

So, let's move on to hear from Shilpa!


Hello everyone, Shilpa here. I am super excited and honoured to be invited as a Guest designer at Frilly and Funkie. Thank you so much Frilly and Funkie Design Team for choosing my journal page as a winner at 'All about Wendy' challenge.

I live in a beautiful city, Bangalore, India. I am a SAHM to a teenage daughter. I am a Mixed Media Artist and I also love to play in my Art Journal with lots of colour and other art mediums every now and then. I've been doing paintings for years and love to play with colours. I started making handmade cards ten years ago, I got introduced to Mixed Media a couple of years ago and am addicted to it now. I love to try new techniques and new products and share with my fellow crafters/ artists. My blog's name is 'Neon Diary'.


I started with Tim Holtz tissue wrap. I attached it to white card stock. I cut out Poinsettia diecuts and adhered them randomly. I applied gel medium on them and sprinkled Rock Candy Distress glitter on to it. I used Distress Stains and Distress Paints to bring on the festive colours. When it dried completely I applied Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks at the edges. I've chosen Tim Holtz Kraft Core shattered card stock as a base.


I created texture on same green craft core paper with Tim’s Faded Bubbles Alterations embossing folder. Used my distressing tool to reveal kraft color underneath.


I've used the Cherry Lyn poinsettia die to make the poinsettia, the Memory Box die to make the wonderful bauble and the Spellbinders die for the leaves. The charm is from Tim's Idea-Ology Christmas adornments. And when I put everything together… my card was ready.


I hope you liked my card. Looking forward to see what you will come up with this fabulous challenge theme.

I'm sure you'll all agree that Shilpa's card is beautiful and has provided lots more inspiration for the current challenge 'A Vintage Holiday'.

If you would like to join us as a Guest Designer then all you need to do is join in!
