Shabby Shutters

Welcome to week #103 in The Shabby Tea Room!
This week Fran is out host and she has picked this beautiful photo for our inspiration.


Fran asks that we create a card or project using navy/blues & neutrels and a distressed element.



The image I used is called Going for a Ride from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. The distressed item is the background paper. I did a technique that Betsy Veldman showed on her blog last week and I really wanted to try it. The Kraft paper was painted with blue and cream acrylic paint, then embossed. After embossing I removed part of the paint with colorless blending solution. It definitely gives a 'shabby shutters' kind of feel to the paper.



Little Darlings rubber stamps is our sponsor this week! The winner this week will win one complete stamp set.


Check out the other Shabby Girls to see what they have waiting for you.
