What is Shabby Chic? Well, I looked the definition up and this is what I found: Shabby Chic is something that's rather worn out/tattered and appears shabby, but has a touch of understated class. I have never done shabby chic before and was a little intimidated by this challenge! So, here is my Shabby Chic card, whether it really IS shabby chic or not! :)
The image that I am featuring today is called "All Wrapped Up" and she is one hot little package! :)
I found some designer paper at Michael's this is made of kraft with gold embossing. I layered that onto kraft paper with a layer of gold metallic paper. I added bit of cream-colored lace and doily plus a little bit of gold metallic ribbon. The December 25 piece is cut from the pack of patterned paper and popped up on pop dots. I "sat" the image on top of it. A gold earring to match the gold embossing and ribbon, and a few cream-colored paper flowers finish off my shabby chic creation.
So, how'd I do?? I know I need practice! I also need practice with my new camera. I'm having trouble getting the flash just right. I apologize for the poor pictures! I think my next class should be in photography!
Now, if you haven't been there, yet, head on over to the SSD Blog for more inspiration from the design team!!!
