Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! One of my crafting goals this year is to make more shabby chic cards. I love this look and I hope to get better at it as time goes on AND that only comes with practice! I also plan on using up a lot of my scraps, so these will be scrap cards as well. On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month I plan on posting a shabby chic card I have made. Here is my first one!
I found the bird image in my stash, colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and cut it out using the Spellbinder Small Circle die. I sponged the edges with brown ink. I used a new stencil a secret Santa sent me and applied clear sparkle embossing paste in the left corner. The trees are Sizzix dies left over from making some Christmas cards. I found the pine cone in my stash and added it to the bow. I punched the greenery using a Tim Holtz punch. The edges of the strip of patterned paper was roughed up by using the Tim Holtz distress tool.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Haved a wonderful New Year!
