Shabby Chic Sarah Kay

Good morning everyone. Hope it's not tooo wet and miserable where you are, it's pretty grey and soggy here today. Anyway thought I'd cheer myself up by finally finishing this Sarah Kay card. I coloured this image ages ago and put her in a box and forgot all about her. Then I had the idea to make a 'shabby chic' style card using some gorgeous MME Papers that I rediscovered in my craft box. So the card was born! I used scraps of already part used papers to make a little line of bunting which I was really pleased with and will be using again. I then folded back the corner of the paper and fixed with a Papermaina DIY brad and filled the corner with a large chocolate rose from Magnolia and some other smaller roses from my stash.
I am entering this over at The Shabby Tearoom as they are running a challenge to use scraps. - Week #3 'Let's Get Scrappy'

Close up to show colouring and distressing. Sorry I can't do a colour recipe for this one but I coloured it sooo long ago I've forgotten which browns I used.


  1. Too adorable! LOVE the bunting! I'll be in later:)

  2. Totally gorgeous, Claire. Beautiful colour scheme.
    I'll be seeing you very soon. I need more pens, lol. I have a tower to keep them in now. :o)

  3. love the vintagey look of this one claire
