Sweet Pea Stamps Customer Blog Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello there second post of the day  and boy am I excited to share this one with you. I made this one for the customer challenge on the Sweet Pea Stamps blog, I decided to do a shabby chic card using lots of techniques to challenge myself as much as anything.

I stamped the image using Aged Mahogony distress ink onto watercolour paper. Then I used my waterbrush to bring the ink out into the image. I then went over with a bit more ink if I wanted more definition. I then outlined the image with white inksentials ink pen. I then used a Distress crackle glaze over the image. I distressed the sides with my scissors and inked.

I distressed my MME papers with the same distress ink and I added some copper paint dauber too. I added a sentiment from my recent grab bag from the shop. I also added lots of embellishments from my stash.

It would be great to know if you think I have captured that Shabby Chic look. Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate it. Hugs Pascale
