Just a quick post of my newest creation...
I distressed edges of the base cardstock and diagonally layered two strips of white embroidered ribbon. The next two layers on my card are Cricut Ornamental Iron 2 and Damask Decor cutouts which I covered with a thick layer of white crackle distress paint to give it that rustic aged look. I added some more white embroidered ribbon underneath the square damask heart cutout and created ruffles for extra shabbiness and dimension.
You can see that aged look in this closeup...Distressing and aging are my favorite techniques.
I created this shabby bow with white seam binding ribbon and embellished it with a vintage crown button and rustic key that I painted with white spray paint and added some white crackle distress paint on it as well. Distressing, aging and adding a shabby bow is just my thing :)
