Shabby Chic Hatter

Good afternoon everyone!
I hope that your Week is a good one so far!

I think – after my very first attempt at a  Shabby Chic card the other day – I have been bitten by the Shabby Chic/Vintage bug.

Especially after seeing these gorgeous new papers from Pion Designs. Grins.

Aren’t they just so very beautiful?!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

They are called Paris Flea Market and I got mine from Dies to Die For.. (Enabler alert here.. they deliver world wide! Grins.)

My beautiful image is a stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and she is called Emily Rose Hatter.

To bring her to life I used my Copics in the following shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hat.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Dress and Grounding.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Ribbon, Bag & Shoes.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hair.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skin.

To mount my picture “into” the artwork on the paper behind, this is what I did.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I position my image where I wanted it to sit, then I place pencil marks the side edge and bottom.

Then again at the top and side edge. Like so.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Then I took my craft knife and cut around the image within the marked area.

And again at the top.

Then I mounted my image using wet glue so I had time to position it.

The cream doily, flowers …

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

… & pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

My image is cut using my Stitched Rectangle Die set by DIEzyne Dies available from CC Designs.

To finish I edged everything, including my card base (made from 2 sheets of A4 Cream Hammer Card) with my Frayed Burlap Distress ink by Tim Holtz.

Shabby Chic over at That Craft Place.

Hello Everyone and a very happy Sunday to you all! 

My card today is my first attempt at Shabby Chic.  I don’t do this ever on my cards, so please be kind to me, as this is me trying my very best. Smiles.

To create this shabby chic card I played with  Ballet Boots which was a freebie on the very first Sugar & Betty’s challenge here. 

But don’t forget, you can get some fabulous images from That Craft Place over on Etsy.  

And some amazing crafting goodies from That Craft Place shop..(Yes they have an awesome real world shop too! Smiles.)

To bring her to life I used my Copics in the following shades:-

The frayed burlap is from Alyce of Kit & Clowder. I got it as part of an embellishment kit when I took the pencils class.

My papers are Bearly Mine Designs Vintage Fantasy.

I edged the papers and base card with my Frayed Burlap Distress Ink pad from Tim Holtz.
