Hi Friends! Today I'm here to share a card made for the new Viva La Verve sketch (March week 3) and the Simon Says challenge to make a shabby chic card. I've been enjoying this style lately and Verve is always a perfect match for distressed edges and sponging!
Where Flowers Bloom PJ. The flowers are from Brighter Days and are cut with the Scalloped Flowers die.
I flipped the sketch to accommodate my flower and large sentiment. All my edges are sponged and distressed and I added some wonky machine stitching to my base layer. I also added some Stardust Stickles randomly on the edges of my flower. I also busted my ink spritzer tool out of hiding and added some sprayed detail with a crumb cake marker.
The brad in the center of the flower was pewter, I "shabbied" it by adding a layer of white enamel and wiping most of it off before it dried.
I kept the inside of my card super simple so there would be lots of room to write a message. I used my inkpad direct to paper and also spritzed on some crumb cake marker. The medallion from Grateful Elegance is stamped in Tattered Rose.
