I'm back with my recipe for shabby chic with the mid month posting for the all new Our Creative Corner challenge. Jenny is our host and she has given us a recipe challenge - pick at least one ingredient from each of three columns and use those items on our make. So I used everything from column A - lace, ribbon & fabric, wood and metal from column B and inks from column C and here is my the result. I started using the charming For Mother paper from Pion Design, using two sides of the same sheet and ran a narrow strip of burlap to cover the join. I adhered the burlap with Claudine Helmuth's Multi Medium Matte.
The sentiment is from the Artistic Outpost Typography plate, stamped with my favorite all purpose stamping ink, Ranger's Jet Black archival. Almost done, but the top looked a little lacking so I added a sweet white jute ribbon and a little tri-bud hand painted with my mixture of inks that I use to hand paint my Venise lace appliques.
Be sure to stop Our Creative Corner for today's fresh dose of inspiration - you won't be disappointed! And you still have a couple more weeks to play along. This challenge closes on June 28th.
Wishing you all a great weekend filled with pleasant summer sunshine (and no storms!).
