Shabby Chic Christmas

Fingers crossed that this schedules OK as I will be winging myself off to Dublin for a workshop with Eve. This is her first one in months and I can’t wait.

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight is: Shabby Chic Christmas.

Shabby chic is an appearance of age and signs of wear and tear (sounds a bit like me) … or … where new items have been distressed to achieve the appearance of age … ahhh that’s more like me!!

Really ruffled the edges of this cardstock. Scratched, rubbed, pinched … sounds like an itch … and tore but eventually got the effect I was after.

    Hi Shirley…you – shabby chic! lol, probably first thing in the morning. I looove your card Shirley. The layers in the back look so delicate and fold around to hug the main piece beautifully. And what a very clever colour combo!
    I hope you have thoroughly enjoyed your play day.

    Your description really did make me smile Shirl, I think it sounds much more like me at the moment but without the ‘chic’ part! Your card is fabulous, love the ruffled edges and the wonderful colours you used. Thanks so much too, for your well wishes. Hugs, Anne x

    Oh, I love this – the tree looks great, and all the scritching, scratching and picking paid off on those distressed edges!
