A Shabby Mix


Okay, I have to just say it. I LOVE this image by Penny Black!!! It's called Mixed Media, and I got it from Stamper's Dream!! It's all one image, is ultra cool and gorgeous, and is so easy to use. I just stamped it a total of four times with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Three times onto three different Basics Manilla dp designs (Basicgrey), and once onto One Sheet Wonder Couture cs. After that, I diecut the three images from the Basicgrey papers with Labels 1 Nestabilties (Spellbinders), and left one whole, tore one panel from the next, and two panels from the third. I then just added some Versamagic ink to each panel and ink distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Ranger Distress ink. The flowers were colored with copics, cut out and adhered to the already glued and distressed panel. The two top flowers are popped up with dimensionals.

The little sentiment is from the Flourishes set "From the Garden", and was punched out with the SU! Designer Labels punch. I added some sweet Seam Binding Ribbon, (MemrieMare) and a gorgeous little Sparkler button by Webster's Pages.

Finally, I added some Kaisercraft pearls, a border with an EK Success punch, and a touch of sparkle with a Quickie Glue Pen and some Ultrafine glitter. Oh, and I almost forgot, the bg dp is Basicgrey Capella.

That about sums it all up!!
Hope your week is off to a great start.
I'll have a CCEE card ready to show you tomorrow, so be sure to stop by.
Happy Stamping!
Tosh

Hi!
I don't often comment on people's blogs- mainly because I follow hundreds, but this card really caught my eye this morning! It really epitomises shabby chic- I'm very jealous that I didn't make it!!!
