A Shabby Fairy!

I'm not sure if this card constitutes shabby chic or just shabby! I had great fun making it and I guess that's all that matters! lol! They've got some great challenges going on at the mo at Polkadoodles. This week it's vintage/shabby chic - a great excuse to get the Kraft card out and attack all the edges of the papers with scissors!

The digi stamp, papers and ticket sentiment are all from the Polkadoodles Sugarplum Daisy CD. I made a mask of the image and made some clouds using the ink dusters and tumbled glass distress ink. I coloured the image with copics.

I distressed just about everything with walnut stain distress ink - lightly though not Dawn Bibby style (I do love Dawn but she does love to slather everything in LOTS of walnut stain, lol!)  The circular die cut out of Kraft card is the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die, a nice change from a doily. The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The gorgeous ribbon is from my local craft shop - Samuel Taylor's - it's expensive but it sure does look scrummy!!

That's all from me, hope you've had a great day. I'm going to enter the card into the following challenges:

Polkadoodles - Vintage/Shabby Chic
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes + Kraft
