Happy Tuesday everyone. Please make sure you read this post all the way through to the end...you won't want to miss some exciting news! Thanks for joining me today for TLT. That's right, today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday. Our Design Team has been having weekly challenges among ourselves and this week it was Hayley's turn to pick the theme. Hayley picked Cats vs Dogs with a shabby chic/vintage theme. Umm, hello Hayley...I don't do shabby chic/vintage lol! Now, don't get me wrong, I think other people make gorgeous shabby chic/vintage cards. It's just waaay outside my comfort zone, know what I mean? Anyway, I've been stalling long enough...here's my interpretation of shabby chic/vintage:
I chose to use this adorable Ladybug Crafts Ink stamp called Catflap Magnum and you can find him here. I colored Magnum with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and used a glaze pen on his eyes and nose. My paper is from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers. I love this paper. I bought the 6 x 6 pad, and of course I've been hoarding it (it's an illness, I know). I distressed the edges of my paper and applied some Chestnut Roan ink on the edges. I've used two small brass brads and some twine for embellishment and that's it. No sparkle, glitter, flowers...yikes!
Now, as I mentioned above the Ladybug Crafts Ink DT has been having weekly challenges among ourselves. But...that's soon to change. We're starting a Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog and it goes live today.
