Shabby Chic




I have been so inspired by all the beautiful cards Jacqueline has been making with the Postcard stamp from Hero Arts that I had to buy it and have a go myself.  I decided on the Shabby Chic look so that I could enter it into the current challenge overt at A Blog Named Hero.  I have used lots of new stamps on this one, part of my Christmas win over at the Hero Arts Blog.  The Tweed background has been stamped in  Old Paper Distress ink, I then stamped the Postcard in Wet Cement.  The flowers were stamped and fussy cut so I could lift some of the petal points for a little definition.  The butterfly is from the "Three Artistic Butterflies" set and stamped onto patterned paper in Dark Green ink.

I had fun with this card and feel as though my mojo is on the way back at last.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

I love the colours! Sometimes just sitting & playing brings the mojo back - having recently been mojoless myself I know how desperate it can feel. Glad yours feels like it's returning!
