A little bit shabby

 Well it's Wednesday once again which means it's time for a new challenge over at Fab n Funky, and this week the theme is Shabby Chic.

Now I have to be honest in that this theme was not something I have really tried before and I wasn't really sure what to do! In the end I came up with this card, which I am not sure if it is shabby or vintage.......or are they both the same thing.....I really don't know.

Anyhow, once I had figured out what I was going to do, I had a blast making this card...I distressed all the papers with scissor baldes and inked them up to make them all look a bit tattered. I even'dirtied up my lovely white neenah card!

Now on to the main image which is a gorgeous Sherri Baldi stamp. Again, I have departed from my usual plans and coloured this entirely in pencils. Once again it was a really enjoyable experience and the colours came out so much bolder than I had expected.

I'm going to be entering this card in to a few challenges, but I hope that you will come and join us over at Fab n Funky and teach me a bit more about Shabby Chic.  :-)

Thanks for stopping by.
