Anyway, here is my first attempt at this style of card.
My papers are from the All Sewn Up section of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD. I used a scissors to distress the edges of the layers and then edged them with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
For the flowers, leaves and sentiment, I used the new Cherryblossom Lane CD. I printed out the flowers and leaves in different sizes and then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. I also inked these a little with the distress ink, layered them up three times for the larger flower and twice for the small flower and then added a little pearl dot to the centres. Also, used my stylus on the leaves to add a little dimension.
Also, to let you know that Nikky has put a sale on at Polka Doodles for February, and all the CD's are £9.99 (approx $16), postage is free, worldwide, on any purchase of £10 or more, so just add a little embellishment pack and there you have it free postage.
For the sentiment, I distressed the edges too and added some ink. Then added some lace, a lace bow, and some pearl dots to finish off. For the inside I used complimentary papers and also distressing these too. The stamp of the flower is from a CTMH stamp set called Blessed.
So, what do you think? Is it Shabby Chic? Or just me being distressed! I did like the effect that the scissors gave to the edge, maybe I will invest in a proper tool.
I hope you will all give this challenge a try, so head on over and enter this week.
