vintage shabby chic

Vintage Shabby Chic, torn or crumpled. How can I pass on a challenge like that? ~Ü~

That's what Make My Monday brings us this week. And Mojo Monday brings us this delightful sketch.

 I know I'm a bit slow off the mark, it being Friday and all, but it's not too late to play along.

The base of this card started with a waste glimmer sheet. It's actually the backing paper when I spray a die cut or something over it. This, I tore, distressed and inked the edges. I added some stitches to a large tear. I've seen it in mags, and thought it was a cool thing to do.

The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp. It's stamped onto kraft paper which I then lightly crumpled and highlighted the creases with DI. The frame is black cs which has been inked with copper ink, and the effect looks a bit like wrought iron. The whole thing is then finished off with a bow and a glimmery butterfly.

supplies: spellbinders die, cheery lynn die, TH stamp, xcut border punch, clearsnap ink, papermania ink, distress ink, tattered angels mist; other materials from my stash
