Hey peeps! I have some exciting news! I’ve joined the Carousel Crew over at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog! :) So you can expect some fun ribbon-y creations from me every couple of weeks!
Today is my first day playing along with one of the challenges and it is a doozy! Break out the shabby and make a chic creation. For me, shabby means distressed edges, crinkly ribbon, doilies, crocheted what nots and stick pins. For all of the challenge details (and instructions on how you can win a prize) and plenty of eye candy from the Carousel Crew check out the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog.
I don’t have any doilies or doily like dies so I used my Lacey Square Nestabilities. For the main image I used the Warm Fuzzies stamp from the Pure Innocence line by MFT Stamps and colored the bunny suit with various pinks.
I used some seam binding I dyed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a bit of white crocheted trim from May Arts to accent the main image. A bit of designer paper from Pink Paislee was the perfect complement to the cardstock and Copic colors I used. To finish the card I added some itty bitty Tiny Twinkles and a stick pin. I did coat the tip of the pink with Glossy Accents… just to be safe! :) Oh and while I had the Glossy Accents out I thought a little on the bunny ears and the tiny hearts would be nice. ;)
Hope you like my shabby card. I must admit that I did a bit of a squee! when I saw my finished creation. I may have to keep this one for a while!
