Vintage / Distressed / Shabby Chic at the PCJ challenge
Time for our first challenge of the year over at the Paper Crafting Journey and this fortnight we have two wonderful sponsors Digistamps4Joy and Digital Delights by Louby Loo. The theme for this challenge is vintage / distressed / shabby chic and I must admit not a style I feel confident with but hey it is a challenge and this is what I came up with.
We were given some fabulous images from DS4J to work with and the one I used is called 'Romany' which I coloured with Promarkers and chalk and layered onto a crochet mat from OneCraftyMama. The papers are My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found' and another that was from my scraps box so not sure where from. From my stash I added pearls and flowers and the die is Memory Box 'Chloe stem'. The sentiment is a leftover from a decoupage sheet and when I accidentally dropped it on the card I found out how strong the glue dots stuck and I mean STUCK, so that's why it's at an angle. I decided to leave it as it doesn't look too bad.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'Grunge'
Lothian Crafts challenge 'Birthday for a female'
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge 'Cover your card with patterned paper'
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes'
Moving Along With the Times challenge 'Girly cards'
Natalie and Amy challenge 'One for the girlies'
Thanks for popping by and I do hope you can join in with us at the PCJ challenge and show us your fabulous papercraft creations, but please remember to check the rules.
