Hello and welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a great week! I've been trying to get my house in order for my son, Noah's birthday as well as Thanksgiving which we are hosting this year! I did have some crafting time and was able to get a card done for this week's challenge which is Shabby Chic/Vintage!
Here is my card...
So I usually would have gone with "Vintage" just because I just have done a few more vintage projects than "Shabby Chic". However, I do admire Shabby Chic projects and thought this would be a great opportunity for practice! So the charming little girl is a digi by The Paper Shelter called "In the 20's". I thought she was so adorable and perfect for this project. I colored her up with my copics and her dress is colored using the Copic Marker Color Fusion Trio 2. I just really tried to stay light with the colors. I even used my colorless blender (0) to take off some of the colors to make them even more muted for a "Shabby Chic" look! I also kept the papers pretty light and used a really pretty collection by Teresa Collins called "Sweet Afternoon". The paper bow is one of my favorite new embellishments and was cut out using a small bow die from Lil' Inkers. I also added some layered Spellbinders in "Labels Twenty" as well as a pretty butterfly using La La Land Craft's Butterflies Die Set. The flowers are a combo of Kaisercraft, I am Roses and the porcelain flowers are from my stash. So for not being a Shabby Chic expert, I was pretty happy with the way it came out! :) Hope you all like it too and give it a try as well!
