We've got a great theme for you this week, especially if you want to stretch yourself into regions unknown.
Susan Butler of Scrumplescrunch is our fabulous hostess at Our Creative Corner, and she is challenging us to go "Shabby Chic".... this is what Sue has to say:
"The theme this week is unequivocally 'Shabby Chic'. This means the shabby part of Vintage! The challenge requires you to pull elements together,
the more old/worn and distressed the elements/images the better; think
of muted colours, layers, roses, burlap and pearls. You do not have to use all of these elements. The effect you are aiming for is a soft warm palette"
This is such an unknown territory for me but I dug deep and took up the challenge:
Sue ("Thank You Sue!) and this became a feature of my card - isn't it pretty? From there I added the MFT flourish dies, some seam binding, twine, roses, sentiment die cuts, a bit of fringey ribbon, pearls and stitching ... whew!!!
I had a great time with this challenge, and I must say .... that having stretched myself a little, I think I have a new fondness for this styling and my admiration has grown tenfold to all you talented and creative ladies that do this so easily and beautifully!
So why not join along with us this week at Our Creative Corner, head into a new and foreign land or simply create the wonderful beauties that you do so effortlessly ... either way, I cant wait to see your project in our gallery!
In the meantime head on over and check out what our inspirational DT have in store for, you'll love all of their creations!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
