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!
Hugs,Birgit

  1. 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.
