Good Morning! Hope you all had a lovely Easter! I don't know about 'April Showers' - it's more like 'April Torrentials' here in Manchester! But at least it's perfect weather for staying indoors warm and cosy and doing some crafting!!! and as it's Thursday again, it's time for a new challenge over at
It's my turn to host the Challenge this week and I have chosen the theme of ….
'SHABBY CHIC and/or VINTAGE'
So we want to see creations that are either Shabby Chic or have a Vintage Image/theme or both! It doesn't have to be a card - as long as you follow the theme.
We are sponsored this week by the fab Crafty Emma's Store
and the Winner of this week's challenge will get a very generous prize of a £10.00 Voucher to spend in the store (excluding P & P)
Roses: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon: from Stash
Isn't it lovely to be able to put a name to the face. This lovely lady is Arlette Dorgère who apparently was a famous artist of varieties from 1909 to the First World War. She's certainly a beauty!
I've used 'Glacier Blue' Flexmarker on the lace and also a touch on the white corners. The WOC metal butterfly was antique gold originally and so painted it with white acrylic paint.
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and I superimposed it onto the Tag from the Scrapbooking Kit.
For the miniature picture I sized down the main photo to fit the little MCH Melissa Frances frame, then just glued the image and trimmed around. It was really easy to do and looks so sweet!
Hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the challenge and to look at my Teamies wonderful creations - lots of different styles to inspire you - and all so beautiful .... oh and don't forget to check if you were a winner in last week's challenge!
