Hi Everyone, I'm trying out different styles, I'm not entirely satisfied with these cards and not sure I'll even send them, what do you think? They are supposed to be shabby chic, something I never do, but thought I would try it.
I blended some tea dye ink over white card after stamping the lovely image, then coloured them as pale as I could, so they looked aged? I scissored the edges, printed background paper after adding faux stitching. I placed some ribbon in the centre, coloured with ink. A holly die was added to the corner, I really couldn't bring myself to add more, as it should be for the shabby chic!
I just had to add these Magpies who visited the garden this week. One had lost its tail feathers, but it didn't stop him flying in and out, with seemingly, no problem.
There wasn't much colour in the one above, being an awful day, so I thought I would go back a couple of years and choose this photo, so you could really see how long the tail feathers are.
