Good morning, here's my DT card for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme being Shabby Chic/Vintage /Distressed. I'm way out of my comfort zone here- it's not that i don't like the style- I just can't seem to get it right! My cards always look as if I've chucked on everything but the kitchen sink...but at least I tried! The image is a sweet Sarah Kay digi, coloured with pencils, the little tags are LOTV stamps- I've added lace, ribbon- die cuts fibres, pearls, a wooden leaf spray, faux stitching...no room for the sink! You don't want to know how many times I pulled this apart and started again ...
There are some MUCH better inspiration cards from my lovely teamies over at Sweet Stampin' so do hop over for a look-see. I hope you find some time over the next 2 weeks to create something beautiful and play along.
Thanks for visiting
Have a happy weekend
Your image is beautifully coloured Chris and perfect for the vintage theme,love your layout and embellishments
Looks pretty good to me Chris and I think the use of Kraft really helps add the shabby feel to it.
Its gorgeous Chris, I always loved Sarah Kay images they are so sweet, not used for awhile but maybe sort through, you have inspired me with this beauty.:))
Hope your having a nice weekend, mine has started with rain, oh well better than melting I should think.xxx
Its got some nice details and I love Sarah Kay, I have this one as well, a wet day here but I am going to watch some of the games this afternoon, xx
I remember this image, so adorable Chris, love your card shape and the flowers and leaves, so pretty..
A really beautiful vintage style card Chris, love the sweet image and all the embellishments (even without the kitchen sink!). Enjoy the weekend.
It's a fabulous Shabby chic / vintage card, Chris! I love the colour combo and colouring on kraft really does make it even more vintage-y, fabulous colouring as well, I haven't coloured with pencils for ages and you're making me think maybe I should get them out again!
I just had a quick wander back through your blog, and didn't realise just how many cards I'd missed - my apologies for being such a bad blogging friend. Please bear with me and I'll get back to being here regularly soon.
Absolutely gorgeous Chris, beautifully coloured image
this is such a very wonderful card and that image is so sweet and just what you expect from Sarah Kay.
Love all the elements used on this card and the colours are gorgeous.
