Getting a Little Shabby!

Hey there, friends! I got down and dirty with my card today, ending up with something a little shabby inspired by the "Fresh Living" image on the Shabby Tea Room blog! Nice and messy with distress inks, glimmer mist, stickles and some liquid glue.

I started out with some Amuse off white cardstock and then distressed with Ranger tea dye distress ink. The background was distressed then ran through a Sizzix embossing folder that was sprayed with olive green glimmer mist first.

The doily stamp from Unity's KOM was stamped with Ranger Embossing ink and then I sprinkled it with Tattered Rose Distress Embossing powder and heat set it, then cut it out. I distressed it with tea dye distress ink, then stamped the sentiment from {ippity's} So This Is Love, in stock HERE and ready to ship!

The flower was a bit of experiment. I used the rolled flower die from MFT and cut some off white felt. I rolled the flower, then sprayed it with a few different colors of glimmer mist, then stickled on top of that. Topped it off with some pink glitter! I hand cut the leaves from the off white felt and sprayed with olive green glimmer mist.

Thanks for stopping by today! I enjoyed sharing my card with you :) You can find today's full list of "Friends with Flair" on the Unity blog!

Have a great weekend :) xx, nora anne

Hi NoraAnne,

This one is wonderful, love the colors you used and that it's (as you say) a bit 'messy'. Perfect this way!

hugs, Wendy
