Shabby Colours

I think I am on a roll in making shabby chic cards. This is another for my set, which now has 2 in it.

The inspiration for this came from -
Paper Sundaes - Distress
Critter challenge - Distress and add a circle (sentiment - I made it myself especially for this challenge using a Raindrop Echo saying and adding it digitally to the circle.)
Wild Orchids - Let's get sentimental

I took another photo to show you that I have added gold foil onto some of the raised parts of the embossed paper. This adds another dimension to the overall effect. Technique suggested by my sister - and I think it has worked really well.

Supplies used -
TH Collage embossing folder
Raindrop Echo - sentiment
bird digi stamp
DIs - shabby shutters, antique linen, tattered rose, pumice stone and vintage photo
Zig glue pen and gold foil
Other bits from my stash

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments when you can. I love reading them.

Take care. Luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
