As promised earlier, I am back with a card that I made a few days ago for some challenges (although some of them are now finshed because I have taken so long to post it!), but as my title suggests, I'm not sure if it is shabby chic. That's the look I was going for, but I don't make these kind of cards very often and I am never sure what to call the style it turns out to look like lol.
Anyway, here it is.
Anyway, here it is.
I used another of the images from LOTV, these are so handy when you don't want to spend ages colouring an image. I added some stickles on some bits of the image just to add some extra detail.
The papers are all ones I got from my dt girls and I have no idea who makes any of them, but I love the muted tones on them and two of them are glittery :)
I distressed the edges of them all with a pair of scissors (I really need to get one of those distressing tools!) and inked them with distress ink.
The dies came out again for this card, MFT was used for the bottom flourish and the other one was with a Marianne Designs die.
The pretty pearl swirl and the butterly in the corner are both by Prima.
The pretty crotchet flowers are of course from Little Snippets, as is the pearl trimming, I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts on top of the crotchet flowers for a change, and I used the crotchet flowers upside down, just because the cherry blossoms seemed to sit better on them that way.
The embroidered lace butterfly is of course from Little Snippets. I always seem to use a colour that Ger doesn't have in the shop!, but she does have white ones and spring shades listed just now and she can do any other colour you want if you just ask.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly- Die Cute
Stampin' for the Weekend- Out with the old (I have had the prima bits for ages)
Anything Goes Challenge- Anything Goes
My Mums Craft Shop- Here come the girls
The Crazy Challenge- Lace and Pearls
