Shabby Chic?





I don't know if I managed to capture Shabby Chic with this, This image was stamped for me by my friend Fiona and the card isn't for my usual distress inks and H20's so out came my promarkers again. Then my sister came, she wants to start making cards, but doesn't want to use water colours so she asked me to show her how to use the promarkers.


Then my son and twin nephews wanted to use them too, they are only 4 years old, so out came a packet of felt tips and I stamped them a load of images to colour so they thought they were doing the same as my sister. I went out to bring my washing in leaving them with my sister at the kitchen table and when I came back in they had drawn all over each other and their clothes. But never mind they enjoyed themselves, bless them haha!



This is for the following challenges:-


1. Sketch Saturday - week # 102 - sketch


2. Lili Of The Valley - challenge 52 - Here Comes Summer


3. Crafty Cardmakers - challenge 20 - Distressed


4. Die Cut Dreams - challenge # 47 - Shabby Chic



It is Sir Stampalot's second challenge, it's the month of May and what better theme than Butterflies and Blossoms, a whole range of Tim Holtz stash is on offer this month, go on pop on over and take a look.


Happy crafting
