Now I don't know if this is "frilly" --- I'm not much of a frills person --- or "funkie" --- I take that to mean "modern and stylish in an unconventional or striking way" as cited in Google's online dictionary --- or even "vintage" --- not that much aged or vintage about this card. However, it does use Tim Holtz product (which the DT uses as part of their definition of "funkie") and I did use stencils --- or at least one stencil in three or four ways. So, what have I to lose?
Anyway, I atarted with a small cut of mustard colored card-stock and used the Tim Holtz layering stencil "Rays" (THS003) across the top, sponging on Color Box "Frost White" pigment ink. After lettig it dry, I moved the stencil slighlty to the right and down and sponged again, this time with "Mustard Seed" distress ink. This is a technique demonstarted a week or so ago at our "local" stamp store by a dear freind, Sherry Bass, which results in what looks like three layers of color in one!. But I took the technique two steps further: I shifted the stencil back to the left but still lower on the page and sponged "Abandoned Coral" distress ink in the lower porion of the rays. Finally, I sprayed through the stencil with Sheer Shimmer spray by Tsukineko.
I stamped a silhouette field of flowers ("A LIttle Bit Scenic Silhouette" stamp set by Sheena Douglas of Bristol, UK) in India Ink Black at the bottom of the card and a message from the same set top middle. I trimmed the final card to fit an A-4 card, wrapped a gold organza ribbon/bow around the field of flowers, and glued it to a yellow Bazill card. Final touch --- one of Tim's Industrial Border stickers at the very bottom of the card.
