A Shabby Chic Technique

Greetings and thanks for stopping by to see what I have made for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.  Our Challenge to you this week is to make something using a Tim Holtz technique.  How fun is that?  He has so many great techniques, especially with the 12 Tags of Christmas just out.  I decided that I wanted to try something that was completely new to me so I went to pg. 49 Compendium of Curiosities and decided on the Shabby Chic technique.  

The construction was pretty straightforward, but if you have questions, just let me know.  After cutting Grungeboard with the Snow Flurries On The Edge Alterations die, products used on it include Expresso and Snow Cap Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers, Tim Holtz Mini Holidays stamp set. A flower was made out of Tissue Tape and topped with a button from the Idea-ology Accoutrements. Some Fragment Charms add the finishing touch.

Now on to the lovely Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog to see what the others have made.  I promise you'll be blown away.  I know I certainly was!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments!

Blessings & hugs,
