Rainbow Lady Shabby Chic.


This week on Rainbow Lady we are being challenged to make a Shabby Chic Card. So here is My fabby Flapper Girl Melody once again. I just adore the Roaring Twenties and she is perfect for it. 
I looked up on Wikipedia exactly what Shabby Chic meant.


"Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from regular vintage decor; hence the "chic" in the name."


Card Recipe

6 x 6 Card
 Flapper Girl Melody Stamp
7 Gypsies Paper
Whitewash Co-ordinations Paper Embossed with Swiss Dots Folder.
Flowers from stash
Crackle Glaze on Part of Paper.


We are being sponsored this week by Crafting.co.uk who have given us a fabby goodie box as the prize. 


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges. 
2 Sisters Challenge.- Embossing
Anything Goes Challenge - Distressing
