The guidelines for entering are simple: create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. For this challenge, we'd also love to hear how you did something OPPOSITE of your normal style (and we'll be taking a peek at your regular projects to see your normal style).
I decided to go Shabby Chic and very romantic with the pinks, ivories, and gold tones and lots of pretty embellishments.
I love to create in all styles but for the Frilly and Funkie challenges I am on the Funkie side with more edge so for the challenge this week I went Frilly!
I started with this beautiful big jumbo tag and coated it with a layer of paint. I then stamped and stenciled over the background. After that I heat dried the background to ensure the dampness form the dye inks were completely set before I stamped the pretty doily on the backround using Versamark. Then I heat embossed with ivory embossing powder to have it pop.
You can see a bit of the stenciling and stamping on the background in this close up.
Then I looked around for all kinds of embellishments to accent my card.
The dragonfly started as chipboard and was painted and embossed and highlighted in gold. This card is for my MIL who has a birthday right around Mother's Day so she got two tags on the card. (She will get another card for one of them)
