We are doing shabby chic at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey my sweet friends!

Today we are having one of my fav styles as a challenge at WhoopsiDaisy. And that is....Shabby chic, yeeeeay!!! I just love to make a little mess with my creating. If you look closely on my card you`ll see that i have painted all my panels. For this i have used gesso blended with a tiny dash of water to make it a bit thinner and easily applicable. I have also used 9 layers in total inclusive the doily and the cheesecloth, so the card is quite heavy, lol.

The image is one of Linnie`s newest ones and you can find it on sheet #301. In the WhoopsiDaisy shop.


The colours i have used on this image are these:

Skin:
Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Hair:
Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb

Dress:
Baby pink, Coctail pink, Salmon pink

Pants:
Tan, Putty, Satin



I also have gottn a hold of these gorgeous lilys. They are quite flat, so the card doesn`t get so incredibly chunky. I just looove the looks of these.


Challenges i`m entering:

Oh la la Creations - Challenge #89 Punches / Dies
Incy Wincy - Challenge #112 Distressing
Nettie`s Digital Gems - Anything goes challenge
Stamp with fun - Challenge #129 Anything goes
Card Cupids - Challenge #37 Anything goes

Gingerloft - Challenge #25 Vintage or distressed
One Stitch at a time - Challenge #80 Punch it
The squirrel and the fox - Challenge #1 Anything goes

If you love shabby chic like i do, then you just HAVE TO come join us at Whoopsidaisy. I KNOW you can`t resist to play with those soft colours and your cute images, lol.

Bare helt fantastisk vakkert kort :)
Nydelige fargevalg, motivet er flott fargelagt og den blomsten er bare fantastisk:) Kjenner jeg trenger noen nye blomster, kan jo aldri få nok...
Må jo si at Shabby Chic var nytt for meg, men jeg kjenner jo til hva det er i interiørverden, så jeg bare prøvde å gjenskape det i kortet ;)
Ha en fin dag, Mona :)
Klem Lill

This is so sweet, I've never tried working with gesso - might just have to give this a go after seeing your beautiful card.

So glad the card arrived - did you have a lovely birthday?
