So today I am sharing a card with you that I made on Sunday evening for the challenge that I organised on the facebook group Cards Galore - I am the boss of the challenges and the lovely Debbi Powell has even made me a badge to prove it! lol
It seems that the cards galore team are all getting new badges for their blogs so look out for these!
here is mine -
The challenge that I uploaded for Sunday evening was to create a shabby chic or vintage card...
I used this picture for inspiration:
I love the look of this room and I love all the co-ordinating little bits that are included!
The card that I created was using one of my oldest stamps which is a forever friends stamp and I love it.
I decided that I would use very muted colours with my card and I used some DSP that I have had for many years (one of those that you don't like to cut up!) but has very subtle colours - they remind me of spring and new blossom - even if we are having such rainy and cold weather.
I have coloured the forever friends bear with my water colour pencils - something I have so rarely used but love the effect that they give... I have then distressed the edges of the card and mounted the image on to pink, cocoa and white coloured card.
I have added a tab of ribbon to the right of the card and stapled this... I have added 3 card candi to the top right of the card and the sentiment is mounted on pink card and DSP.
Here is a close up of the image:
