Let's Get Shabby!

I found this great challenge site called Let's Get Shabby. There is some fantastic inspiration to be found there, so if you get a chance go and check it out.

I decided to play along with CHALLENGE 16 that they have happening at the moment. This is the challenge requirements - PART 1 - choose a kitchen to be inspired by. I chose KITCHEN 2.

Kitchen 2

PART 2 - Here is the ingredients I needed to have on my project.

One piece of fabric - Tie On button
Two die cut shapes - 2x butterflies
Three colours from your chosen kitchen - pink, white & yellow.
You were allowed to use other items on the page but you had to make sure you included the recipe requirements.

Here is my take on challenge 16. I just love how it turn out, so sweet and girly!!


Close Ups

I painted the sign post, fence and daughter title white then once dried I sanded them to give them that shabby look. I then painted the butterflies pale yellow, sanded them and then applied Crystallina Kindy Glitz to give them a slight shimmer.

The larger flowers are made from Sandras wonderful crotched doilies available from HERE at the Scrapping Outback shop. The signpost, fence, butterflies and daughter title are all available HERE from the Scrapping Outback shop. I also used Prima - Fairytale Roses - Orchid available from HERE at the shop.

Thats about all for now..thanks for stopping by!!!
