Shabby Chic Challege from Ms. August!

Bombshell Stamps' Ms. August, Milo Lilja, challenged us to create a Shabby Chic project using predominantly white and lace.

Here's my project.

I used Rose from Bombshell's Rose's Portrait set.

Rose was colored with Copic markers in some of their palest shades so she'd work with the challenge. Since I could've joined AARP several years ago, I decided to make Rose's hair gray. My white rose didn't come out right, so I opted to create a pale pink one and then used the same Copic markers to color the white roses from Michael's. Rose's earring was colored to match, then coated with a layer of clear Spica glitter pen, and a layer of clear Glaze pen to make it dimensional.

I used Nestabilities to cut the portrait oval, then used a larger oval Nestie as a guide to tear the vellum. The reverse of the oval was colored with the same pale red Copic marker.

White cardstock took a ride through my Big Kick inside of a Cuttlebug folder. Distress Inks were used to ink the embossed designs and to edge the punched border and all the other layers.

Lace, sparkly sheer pink ribbon, Copic-tinted flowers, and blush-colored pearls finished off the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
