Corrosive Challenge


It's Sunday! We've got a fun challenge for you this week at the Corrosive Challenge blog! It's our Not too Shabby challenge. Make a card or project with a shabby chic feel to it. I really struggle with this. I did a lot of distressing and added some pearls and seambinding and pins. Hope I got a bit of the right feel.

Kathy, she is just darling! I think shabby and vintage mean something a little different to everyone so it's fabulous to see your take on it! Great sketch, sweet papers, and love the pins through the seam binding bow! Delightful creation! :)

Great job with this sketch, Linda! Marvelous color combo and perfect papers. Such a sweet image and I adore the way you matched your embellie flowers to her bouquet! Wonderfully done.

Kathy, this is very pretty !

Another fabulous creation, Kathy. I think this has a vintage feel, I could totally see that paisley paper as a wallpaper in a big old victorian house. Love her bright green dress and the pins that match.
