Firstly I'd like to say a big 'hello' to my new followers - I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my little blog, and secondly....It's October...what happened to the last 9 months???!!
It's time for a brand new challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty and this month the theme is...
A LITTLE BIT SHABBY
Now, I'm not too good with the whole shabby/chic type of thing, but I had a go and here's my effort!
The image is one of the gorgeous fairies from the 'Return to Fairy Glen' collection. I've coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings.
I tried to give the card a bit of a distressed look but after a few attempts with sandpaper, I was the one distressed so I turned to the cheese grater! Then I thought I'd do a bit of stitching around the edges, but the sewing machine stitched it's last and I had to resort to a promarker fine liner pen! At least I had all the pretty flowers from the Ribbon Girl to fall back on.
I also used a MB cloud die, a MB Pippi butterfly die and the pearls and ribbon are from my stash.
This month we are sponsored by The Octopode Factory with a $10 gift certificate.
