WMCD - Shabby Chic Challenge Three


It's my last challenge for the WMCD Extravaganza! You can have your choice with this one...either create a card, where you beat up and age your paper, or create a card using a toile background. What can be more Shabby Chic then toile! :-)


The toile paper I used is from an old Stampin' Up! pack of paper...back before double sided paper (gasp) was all the rage! I toyed with keeping this card completely monochromatic but just couldn't resist coloring in my little partridge girls!

The card base in vanilla with pomegranate and toile layers. The edges of my toile paper has been notched so add space for my antique pewter brads. A satin ribbon, in matching pomegranate, was added. Then more pomegranate and toile! The square with the four circles is actually a piece of chipboard, covered in the toile paper. The justjohanna partridges have been colored with Copic Markers, cut out and attached at various angles in the circles. (Did you know that many of Johanna's images include a right AND left facing image? How fun is that!) The darling "Merci Bird-coop" was added to the front and attached with stampin' dimensionals and of course everything was aged!

Viola!

Final prize of the evening!! A stamp set!!

This is a beautiful three stamp set, with images that would be just perfect for creating Shabby Chic cards!! Don't forget to add links back to your creations!!

PS - Since I've posted three challenges, under the Shabby Chic "heading", I'm going to give everyone who would like to participate an extra 24 hours to create and post a link. ONLY my prizes will be awarded and announced on Monday (10/8)!! **NOTE** The winners of the justjohanna prizes will be choosen at the close of the Extravaganza.

Here's my take on the shabby chic. The photo isn't very good, so the distressing doesn't quite come through - I'm sorry about that. No daylight left here in Sweden. :(

Hi Kim. I did a double toile card. The background paper is pink with dark pink toile and I stamped a toile image. I love all your shabby chic examples.

Thank you for the challenge! I've had these metal tags for a long time and finally found a great way to use them!
