Wow, Saturday already and time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week we want to see your "Shabby Chic" creations.
I started off with a 6x6 card ( I know, who'd have thought it!) and trimmed some golden brown card slightly smaller to make my base mat. I scraped round the edges of the paper with my scissors to distress them.
I chose this patterened paper from an old Lili of the Valley pad as I thought it had a vintage feel and distressed it in the same way and added to the card. I stamped the Lili of the Valley distressed sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz ink on a square piece of card. In reality it has a lovely shimmer, hopefully the second pic will show some of that. I then distressed the edges and added it to the card at an angle.
I die cut Sue Wilson's Vinery die out of the golden brown card and snipped them into pieces to tuck them behind some paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a few brown/gold gems and of course a little faux stitching to finish.
I'm looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations, just remember that you need to include some stamping on your project.
