This week our theme is
I'm not very good at shabby chic - my friend Lorraine is so much better at this style than I am - so I was a bit concerned about the challenge. However, when I was down at Cathy's we had a chat and a look at some other cards and a quick look through some of her stash and so a card was born...
This really is a beautiful stamp and I was going to add some colour to her with DI's but I decided, on this occasion, just to leave her the way she was.
I distressed the DP and CS and then inked round the edge with some Picket Fence Distress Stain. I also couldn't find the right shade of seam binding ribbon in my stash so I found a bit of ribbon, then wet it and scrunched it up and then held it in a little tight ball inside a bit of kitchen roll so it looked a bit more worn than the pristine ribbon it started out life as. It doesn't look bad so I might try doing that again!
Brown Sugar - Shades of Blue
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Cupcake - Anything But a Square
Papertake - Old, New, Borrowed or Blue (Old ribbon, blue card and the paper was borrowed - although Cathy isn't getting the bits I used back...)
Meriel - Stempelglede
Remember to drop by Sweet Stampin' and see what the rest of the Team Fi Sweeties have been up to!
Perhaps you could have a go yourself but don't forget to stamp now ;)
