The current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero is all about Shabby Chic or Vintage style cards. I like this genre but an not always as successful at it as I'd like. I find the layering of many layers difficult to do. But a challenge is a good thing....
I have a My Mind's Eye PP pad called "Follow Your Heart" and the papers are just perfect for this genre. I used this one as my base for the card. I cut a doily die from Die-Namics from cream card and stamped Hero Arts Starburst in Antique Linen distress ink. I punched a second piece of the PP and laid it across my card with some ribbon. The two butterflies from a HA stamp/die set stamped and cut from some more of the PP. I edged with Worn Lipstick ink and layered the two together with some gems ( saw Betty do the other day.) Stamped the sentiment and added the silver bling flourish.
The ABNH have been giving some great inspiration and instructions on how to make shabby chic/vintage cards. Well worth having a look at their blog.
Not sure what is going on with blogger.... last night I had major issues with it... so if you didn't get to see my post about Paula's scramble, feel free to pop over here.
And did you see my little sneak peek about over at Die Cut Diva's blog... I'm hosting March's challenge and we've managed to secure a sponsor.... can you guess who? Hop over to the blog on Friday to see what the challenge theme is and who our sponsor is....
Thanks for stopping by today.
