Crafty Cardmakers and Woodware – Shabby Chic or Distressed

Woodware is again sponsoring the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers


This week the theme is  Shabby Chic or distressed, so it should be a fun week, why not join in with us you can play along on the Crafty Cardmaker blog the challenge is open for two weeks.

For my card I have used the Clear Magic Three Houses designed by Jane Gill


yes it is just 3 houses, but I go a bit carried away. The card is 12 x 6 inches I used the black and white Textura Card.


I have paper pieced the houses with papers from the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist.


then I fussy cut the houses, and inked the edges with a Blue Dye ink and a stencil brush.


don’t they look pretty?


then I inked the white layer and scuffed the edges with the Woodware scuffer.


then got  the sewing machine out and stitched it with wobbly stitches. On my machine I can vary the length of the stitch as a sew and it is fun to do that , and to make the lines wobble.


then I added the houses to the card


I attached them from either end so that the pale one in the middle stands out.


I hope you like my card as much as I do, thanks for visiting, you can see what the rest of the girls have been up to over on Woodware Witterings
