Shabby Chic Dress Form Card

Hello,

Just a quick post of my latest make:


I tried something new to me: making shabby chic flowers with ribbon.


I used left over pieces of ribbon to make three flowers and the rest is just randomly arranged pieces or various ribbons...


I used metal flowers for the centers of my fabric flowers and randomly covered everything with gesso. The chipboard dress form is also covered with gesso and crackle paint.


The corner metal filigree is covered with crakle paint.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Shabby Chic Floral Wreath Card

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of my latest make:


Inspiration for this card came from several different challenges that helped me put this make together. I'll list them at the end of this post.


Hand made flowers were painted with white and grey paint and covered with Martha Stewart white glitter and embellished with white and grey pearls. The wreath is placed ontop of the faux wood background that I made with cardboard strips painted with white, grey and broken china paints, then covered with Deco Art white crackle paint...


I added some Magnolia Rose Leaf die cuts, also painted with white and grey paint and covered with white glitter...


Shabby Chic bow was made using ivory color seam binding ribbon which I hand died with Tumbled Glass distress ink, and I added some crafters twine and glittery flower to top it off....


One more look at the finished card...
