Hello everyone I am soo excited just for the fact that I have a card to share with you all today.. hehehe. Life has really come full circle for me right now.. I have had Birthday's, Prom, Award ceremony, sports Banquet and it is not even half way done yet. Wow I got tired just thinking about it. :0) But for the most part I have loved every moment of it. I have just a little over 2 weeks until by DD graduation, my youngest son is graduation from Elementary school. So for the main part of just being able to focus long enough to get a card done is a great thing.
I have a question and would love any feed back. I have heard the theme or term of many challenges lately as "Shabby Chic". I have not a Clue as to what that means. So if anyone can enlighten me I would be grateful. I know Retro and I know Vintage so just need to know where doe "Shabby Chic fit in. That brings me to my card today.
I used this super adorable image from Babybud Designs. This little beauty is named Molly and I just Love her. Love her little outfit and her bonnet. I wanted to give my "Faux Charcoal" technique another try. I did another card using this technique when I first saw a tutorial about it a few months ago. So once I realized I wanted to print the image on "kraft" card stock I knew that this is the technique that I wanted to use to color her with. I only used two colors which where my Black and White Prisma pencil and OMS. For this months challenge at Baby Bud is to use Die Cuts or Punches. So I used my Oval Large and Scallop Nesti to cut out Molly Plus my Martha Stewart Punch to add a little boarder, and even my Corner rounders.
I used the Sketch and theme "Shabby Chic or Vintage from Sugar Creek Hollow
