Shabby Tea Room Challenge 2*4*6 ~ My Shabby Goodness
This week at the Shabby Tea Room the challenge is 2-4-6...2 designer papers~4 Buttons~6 layers....a real challenge...not as easy as one would think......I actually made 2 cards for this challenge.....my first (and favorite) was made with some newly purchased Webster paper for my background...the rose ds paper is some I have had in my stash for quite awhile....I love both of those papers! I added a shabby flower I made from hand dyed seam binding.....my fourth button is the flower center......added leaves and for my 6th layer I popped up the butterfly...the doily was colored with 3 blended colors of chalk ink.
The second card I used a ton of detail......the "butterflies" were made by using a MS punch I added buttons to each and cloth covered wire which I inked.....I used an old 5 cent postage stamp that is the general federation of women's clubs..the center of the stamp reads "75 years of service for Freedom and Growth"...the little phrase under the stamp reads "Flowers and butterflies drift in color"...I added frosted lace stickles to the fairy wings and to the ds paper on the flowers.......love to hear your thoughts...thanks!!
