Hello and welcome!!
First I would like to thank everyone who participated in the last challenge. I hope you enjoyed working with the sketch. I will post the winner of the last blog candy later today. I have decided to move the challenge to a new blog, you can check it out here.
Today's challenge is "Shabby chic". While I don't do this style very often, I love the look.
I used the "Mushroom Lane- Butterfly" image from the Digital Stamp Oasis. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. Did lots of sponging and distressing to get a shabby look. I don't have a distressing tool, I just use a pair of closed scissors. I also got out my Janome mini sewing machine and did some sewing along all of the edges. To finish off the card I added the leaves (made with a sizzix die), prima flowers (which I also sponged), with rhinestone brads and the crocheted ribbon. I also added flatback peals to the corners and stickles to the dots on the butterfly and the mushrooms. The sentiment is from SU's set Happy Harmony.
Papers used are riding hood red and garden green (SU). Designer paper by K&company.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you decide to play along too. You can check out the details of this challenge at my new challenge blog "Digital Tuesday Challenge".
