Simply Shabby

 Good afternoon to everyone.  I trust this post finds you all well.

Today’s make is my rendition of a shabby chic card.  I love the feminine style of shabby chic,

the colours, the way it exudes romance, whats not to love about it.

I find myself watching Youtube videos so much, trying to understand how people have such talent,

to bring these beautiful amazing creations to life.

I do try to create this shabby chic style myself, and feel that I am most definetly making progress,

on my shabby journey.

Here is a card I made recently-:

I used a piece of corrugated kraft card, tore the edges to give a rustic look, then dry brushed it with a little

white acrylic paint.  This softened the colour of the cardstock, and made it a little more

dreamy looking.  The topper was from an old Kanban kit called “Belle de Fluer”, and the foliage is a Dreamees die.

I do like me some Dreamees products!  Also in the background you will notice a

small layer of torn paper, which had inked edges, again to soften the look while adding just a

hint of colour, I used Stampin ups Marina mist for this.

There is a tattered lace die cut tucked away behind the topper, and whilst it is hidden slightly,

I feel like it adds just enough interest to the card.

I finished off with an organza bow and a beautiful sparkly gem.

So happy with my results, I think its quite pretty.

Hope you like it too.
