I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Shabby Chic Card Challenge

Time for another Crafty Cardmakers challenge this month and the theme is Shabby Chic.

I made this cards from rubber stamps from my stash.  Bella is an unmounted stamp which I think was from a collection of stamps I bought years ago and still love and I think the company was from Vancouver and is out of business now. 

 I tore the edges to give the card pieces and inked to give the card an aged look,  The ribbon was tea dyed.  I used Copic  and pencil crayons to colour my image. 

Here of another view of the card. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Hope you will join us in this challenge. 
Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to view the art work of our talented design team.
