What is Shabby Chic?

torsdag 1 september 2011

Hi there...hope you all having a great week so far!
This is a Shabby Chic card i made for Top Tip Tuesday and some other Challenges.
At least I think it´s Shabby Chic style, perhaps it would have been a bit milder tones.

For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week´s Papertake Weekly Challenge.

I didn´t color the image so much, just added Star Dust and Frosted Lace Stickles.
For the frame I used Crackle Accents and Platinum Stickles.

I have used papers and stamps from Crafty Individuals, 3ndypaper and Panduro.
I made my flower by using different dies from Docraft and Spellbinders, sponged them with Distress Inks, sprayed with Glimmer Mist and then shaped it. There´s a brad in the middle.

I want to show someting from the inside too.

As always thanks so much for visiting!

Playing along with some more blog challenges:

Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
Sir Stampalot - Frame Up
Lothian Crafts - Handmade Flowers
 Stampatic - Shabby Chic Style

I always wonder the same Birgit, I think it's one of those styles that is a bit open to interpretation.

But it is lovely and perfect for our Stampalot theme this month, thank you for sharing.
