Real Simple Shabby Chic
I came across Lori's blog, The Diva Stamper, and her challenge from the cover of Real Simple magazine. I had some pretty Basic Grey LilyKate paper, so I decided to play, using today's SCS Sketch Challenge as well. I really need to get out of my watercoloring rut, but it's so much fun!
I stamped my image once on River Rock, then again on watercolor paper. I colored the image, cut it out & adhered it with dimensionals on the River Rock image. I used Kraft as my base for the card as well as the image, distressing it with the edge of my quilting ruler. I added some wide satin chocolate chip ribbon, some lace from my sewing rag bag and I aged my pink gingham by daubering it with River Rock. I left the sentiment off so I can add it when I need a specific card. Thanks for visiting!
