I'm not sure SHABBY is really my forte LOL. But, the Shabby Tea Room is having a color challenge. Additionally, they want to see pennants, banners or flags on cards. Since I came across these papers with the colors (pink, aqua, red) in my Prima papers, I decided to give it a shot. It's a style I love,,,,,,,,and I suppose I just need more practice, LOL, but I never seem to quite get the shabbiness I want.
Anywho, it was fun to play!
Here's my card,,,,,,,,
I hand cut the pennants out of 2 inch wide paper, simply marking the center and cutting out a point. I used my brand new Grand labels 23 nesties to make a shaped card, layering on the Madeline Prima paper. I made the two roses out of spellbinders spiral blooms 1 and nested those in the two largest petals of the Rose Creations dies. I tipped here and there with pink crackle paint on the roses and also the papers and added a red and white checked border to the tops of the banners and red and white checked bows to the corners,,,,,,,a few buttons, some aqua netting and she's done!
I hope you enjoyed the card, as bad as it is LOL. And I hope it gives everyone everywhere who is bad at ANY style some hope!
Practice makes perfect!!!!!!
