A Blog Named Hero - If I Could Turn Back Time-Vintage or Shabby Chic Challenge

After my last post I found this Challenge on A Blog Named Hero. The card I made last night is Shabby Chic so fits the bill........................
For the card I have used the Hero Arts Simple Frame (S5324) Stamp, the Wise Bird (H5719) Stamp, the French Script Cling Set (AC015), the Antique Flowers and Butterflies Stamp and Die set (657773), and the sentiment Everyday Sayings (CL342).

I first laid down three Versa Magic colors for the background. Aspen Mist, Wheat and Pixi Dust.
Once this was dry, I laid a translucent wash over the colors with Vera Magic- Cloud White.

The photo below shows the white wash over the left hand side of this sample.

I then stamped the frame, and the French Script within the frame.
I colored the frame with a Distress marker and used the Versa Magic White over the French Script.
A bit of ribbon and twine to anchor the bird, flower and sentiment.
Add a butterfly and some Rhinestones.
And here is the card with the link to the Challenge.


Call back soon.
