I’m extremely excited to be posting this news with you today. The amazing Lesley Croghan, who is the creator of so many of the challenges I’m addicted to, has invited me to be on the new card challenge in town called The Card Concept.
There will be 12 designers sharing in 6 distinct styles of card making. This is extremely exciting for me as I will be one of two designers representing the Shabby Chic/Vintage style. My Shabby/Vintage partner will be Debbie Marcinkiewicz (whose card I just adore) so get ready for loads of distressing and probably lots of scrunchy seam binding bows! What’s the definition of Shabby Chic/Vintage you ask?
- the use of used, worn or inexpensive components to make stylish goods
- distressed or sponged edges
- old feel-antiqued
- lots of embellishments
- ribbons or lace
- lots of layers
Here’s a card I made a little while ago that I think represents my style:
We’d love for you to head over to The Card Concept and check out the different styles the Design Team will be representing – what style are you? The challenge starts in January so you have plenty of time to explore your style.
Thanks for stopping by.
