It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Card Makers again and this time we are doing the theme "Shabby Chic". I always find it really hard to create after that theme as there is more than one definition on that. I decided to do a bit of googling before I went on with this card. Lots to be found about the subject. But returning explainations was : white, worn, lace, pearls, flowers, pastels (green, pink and blue). So I did a little bit of all on this card.
As the kids have been sick for about a week I didn't take the time to colour any image and used a vintage photo instead. Works with the theme. LoL I used some wonderful papers from Maja Design called Sofiero that is a wonderful garden and castle here in Sweden. All the papers are inspired by the gardens there. Now, you don't see that much of them on my card as I have white washed them with some gesso and water. After that I used some Frantage silver and white to make it even more shabby and to look more worn.
Some die cuts made with Spellbinders, chees cloth also covered in gesso, pearl strings from ROX here in Sweden. Lace and flowers from WOC . A key charm covered in gesso as well is from Bildmålarna. And with all that I hope that it looks at least a tiny bit shabby chic.

Well I think this is it for today. I hope to be able to finish of some more cards for my dt-commitments in the coming days as I seem to be way behind all the time now days. I always spend a lot of time trying to get my rehab going and hopefully that will lead to something good. Only that it takes alot of time and energy from my crafting. It's time to do something about my work outs and eating habbits I think to try gaining some new energy in my life.
Love n hugs
