Shabby Chic

Hello Lovelies - How are you? I hope you are okay! Thanks for your comments from yesterdays post - I really do appreciate it. You are very kind!

Today I have a card I have made for a card swap I am involved in - the theme is shabby chic. I have used distress inks and Tim Holtz products.


The distress inks i used are victorian velvet, tattered rose and teadye.I used them on the background before using an embossilicious folder and scraping over with a sepia archival pad. I also used tattered rose distress pen to tint the found relative photo.


The corrugated card is also from Tim Holtz and the lace from my stash.

I hope you have a good Friday - I am hoping to book a break today with some friends and their children and then go off to the gym! Whatever you do - enjoy!

Hugs

Rachel xx
