Good morning everyone. Sorry I have been missing for a few days but I had some commissioned cards to make for work colleagues.
My card today is for the new The Paper Shelter challenge #84 Distressing. I have used the super cute 'In the 20's' for my card. I don't know if it's with being a nurse but I find it really difficult to distress something that looks fine without it. Believe it or not there is lots of distressing on this card, but I think it ended up being a little shabby chic.
She is cut using SB labels 25 with a faux nestie behind her. My base layer is Cordinations craft core and I did use a Tim Holts distressing tool on nearly everything. My backing paper is one that has been in my stash for a couple of years. Flowers from WOC and leaves and butterflies are MS punches. Ribbon from Mei Flower and pearls and lace from a local craft shop. I actually remembered to get out the sewing machine to add stitched edges.
She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I added antique linen DI around her and to the leaves butterflies and backing paper.
The inside is fairly simple and reflects the front
