Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! This week the Midweek Magnolias Design Team wants to see your “Shabby Chic” creations.
Pop over and take a look at the gorgeous artwork the Midweek Magnolias DT has created.
When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous Mystery Prize from Magnolia Sweden.
My card started with a darling stamp called “Drip Drop Tilda.” She was a prize I won from my friend Chris who also posted a lovely card with this stamp here. Check out her blog as she is again offering candy just by leaving a comment.
Tilda was colored with Copics and I gave her a rainy day looking background. I mounted this cutie on a fancy Spellbinders die cut frame. My papers are from Magnolia and I used some new lacy trim I found at JoAnn’s a couple of months ago. That is so like me to buy something and several months go by before I use it.
I distressed, stitched and inked my DP panels for that shabby look. My cloud die cut was run through my printer for the sentiment. I have to give credit to my daughter for coming up with the verbiage after showing her my design. I added some black lace, vintage seam binding and bakers twine for the cloud tag. Then I attached a darling umbrella charm to the ribbon trio. I couldn’t wait to use this darling umbrella die cut from Memory Box and I cut it from white cardstock and some of the pattern paper. The fancy photo corners are from Whimsy Stamps with a rhinestone for a little bling.
I finished off the card with some flowers from WOC and a rolled rose and leaves cut with my Marianne dies.
Here’s a close up of Tilda.
The inside features similar elements from the front and I added a simple sentiment.
