Simon Says...Shabby Chic !


The theme for this week's challenge over at Simon Says is Shabby Chic

Here's what I've made:

I love this new Tilda from the Magnolia Stamp Club Winter Collection and she looks delightful sitting on top of the Magnolia New Year's Glass. 

I used the masking technique, stamping Tilda first, masking her using a Post It Note Template and then using my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to position the glass.  I distressed the edges of my image using the Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool and Ranger Distress Inks


Stamps: Magnolia
Ink: Memento Black and Ranger Distress Ink in Firebrick and Antique Linen
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers and Copic Spica Glitter Pens
Papers: K&Co and Gold Pearl Card from my stash
Embellishments: Flowers - Papermania and roses from my stash. Lace, charm and pearls from my stash.
Tools: Nesties Labels 8 with Sizzix Big Shot, Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.
