My First 'Shabby Chic Card'

Friday, November 02, 2012

Hiii

Please don't say that it is not a Shabby Chic style.. :|

This is my first attempt on shabby chic.. You know I've wasted many pps and cs.. :(
Feeling bad about that.. Anyway.. I have seen many cards and I have gone through many blogs on net, I've got a clarity about this style.. :)

First what I did was I made a sketch and collected all the needful things (like flowers, beads, blings, pearls and etc) from my stash and I started assembling them one by one with out any hurry.. :) I'm happy with the final result but need to improve a lot.. I don't have lace, should buy one.. :)

Anyway.. Here's the card!!



I have distressed the edges with craft brown ink and I've stamped on the PP and added glitter too.. :)



Supplies

Flowers, Wooden embellishment, blings, brown twine with beads ( I made that one) pink crystal heart are recycled from the old hair bands.. :)
Card base - Local Buy
PP - Prima Papers
Sentiment - Karber stampset
Labels - Sizzix deco label (flowers covered it :p)

Entering this into


Thank you so much and please leave your comments and suggestion so that I can improve much.. :)

Have Fun  ;)
