I've gone all Shabby Chic over the last week. I don't even know what started me off, but I went to a Vintage Fair last Monday and bought myself a bargain printers tray to decorate, and then I went to the local Market on Friday and found some very old scales and an enamel jug. I do live in a country cottage so I suppose it should follow. Whilst on the theme I thought I'd have a go at doing a Shabby Chic card. I made a very similar one for Lesley's birthday on Saturday. It took me all day inbetween chatting and laughing at the local crop, but it was well worth it. This one took a lot less time than the original. My old faithful the 'En Francais' large background stamp definately came in useful here. Do you know that 'en francais' was one of my original stamps I chose as part of my Starter Kit? I hope they never retire this stamp. I've also used 'Artisic Etchings' for the Eiffel Tower and the greetings came from 'Clearly for You' and 'Something to Celebrate'. The colours are Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Rose Red and Marina Mist. Although a little fiddly the ribbon roses were made from the Rose Red Seam Binding. Hope you had a great day Lesley!
