Hello everyone! The card I am sharing with you today follows the challenge from The Shabby Tea Room.
You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the COLORS FROM THE PICTURE, INCLUDE A PUMPKIN and MAKE IT SHABBY!

I really struggled with my project this week. I just couldn't find the right papers for the vision I had in mind. I did however have a starting point that I worked from which was a framed picture.
I die cut a frame and painted it white. I then applied some 3D white paint to add dimension and to make it look 3D. I also inked it slightly with some Colorbox chalk ink. The image is a Harrison Fisher girl.
Next I created my large floral element. I cut a strip of tulle and ruffled it up. I layered it as follows, flower, doily, fussy cut flower and then tulle. I fussy cut some leaves and added them afterwards. I coloured some cream seam binding using a distress reinker to finish it off.
I used a printable element from a Shabby Princess digi kit that I had and added it near my sentiment. To finish my card, I added some more flowers and a pearl flourish.

Paper: Kaisercraft Devonshire Collection 6" paper pad and Velvet Ensemble.

Ink: Distress ink and reinker dried marigold, old paper, Colorbox chalk ink chestnut roan

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Vintage Rose medallions

Other: Spellbinders shapeabilities fancy tags and antique frame and accents, Kaisercraft paper bloom sunset, mini paper bloom coral and pearl flourish, Francheville vintage crochet flowers, Stampin' Up! pnch and seam binding, white tulle and bow easy.

Thanks for stopping by!
