Shabby Chic

My first experiment with blending pens - very pale yellows and I found this freebie DP to use as the background...

Am not happy with the pic - it looks way subtler IRL... I used a unity stamp flower with versamark and clear ep which gave me a very pale outline to colour - using my new Kaiserfusion pens in yellow to colour and an orange Tombow for the dots. The dp was free in a magazine and the ribbon is from the shoulders of a shirt. The base card and silver sentiment sticker from stash.
I am linking up to the following challenges with this creation
Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground Week 92 - just use snippets on your creations - I stamped my flower on a white snippet...
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Going Dotty - my dp has some lovely subtle dots on it...
The Paper Players "Tic Tac Toe" - I used Ribbon, Designer Paper and Birthday...
Thanks for stopping by... Mxx


  1. A lovely soft effect Maureen.

  2. I think this card is perfect. Love the yellow flower and 10/10 for using all those left overs up. hugs Mrs A.

  3. That is a lovely soft,muted background for your pretty flower to sit on.I think we all have times when the photograph really doesn't do justice to the " real" life card-but yours certainly looks fie to me :)
    Have a lovely day,Nessa xx
