Ready for some shabby romance? I’ve designed another card for this month’s Shabby Chic Challenge at Power Poppy. I decided to go with another no-line style colouring just because I think the softness of the technique really lends itself to this shabby style. I used the gorgeous new polymer set So Grateful. The dahlia arrangement here is just so pretty! I stamped the image in Memento Desert Sand onto XPress It Blending Cardstock and then gave it some soft copic colouring. Then I trimmed it out with a little border, spritzed it with some Mr. Huey’s Shine, and got ready to work on my background.
I just LOVE the Tim Holtz Gothic stencil. It’s my go to stencil for elegant looks. I used embossing paste on the purple cardstock and then let it dry completely. After it was dry I sponged some SU Almost Amethyst ink in different spots around the embossing paste to give it a aged look and curled up the edges.
I placed a Spellbinders die cut in white underneath the the window I had cut out and then stamped the sentiment and sponged over some more of the stencil in ink softly over the sentiment.
In this shot you can see the shine of the Spritz on the flowers. Then, something I rarely do, I added some rolled paper roses to the design. I think these are Verve dies. Then I finished off with some pearls and lace and it has that vintage shabby appeal.
