Shabbychic !!

Hi  Crafty Bloggers it's me again with another post this week !! I have been having fun crafting today.

I have gone all shabby chic today with my inspiration from this stunning digi image from from FairyD's store . I have added some colour to this  perfect pencil drawing. It's great to help with shading as you can colour over the already shaded areas !! There is also a gorgeous image of a scent bottle. I think I might have to get creative with that one too !!.

I have painted these chipboard elements with white crackle paint and distressed them around the edges with peeled paint distress ink. I added a touch of flowersoft too. I had a curly rose from WOC which I took apart and added some more flowersoft and a wee pearl for a different effect.

I used some floss to tie this wee chipboard tag to the bag. I figured it would be worth a million pounds lol, well best friends and gorgeous bags are !!! The little poem and price are computer generated on my pc and printed.

I used lots of seam binding which I have twisted and also made this little bow.

I also painted the large curly roses with a dab of crackle paint and added stickles .
I would like to enter my creation into these two wonderful challenges
