Grungy Monday #9 Shabby Chic

Loveable you! Some how shabby chic makes me think of romantic decor made of found items from the flea market. So that's what I went for on my tag this week. I used pink acrylic paint and weathered wood DI, along with the ever popular dress form die cut. This was my first experience with t!m's trimmings, which I colored with some more weathered wood. I also pulled out the pearls to dress her up a bit, and of course the requisite scrollwork in the background. It's Grungy Monday over at Linda's Studio L3 and All Things Tim Yahoo group dance over and check out all the beautiful samples.

  4. Finally, after 2 days I can get blogger to let me enter a comment. I loved your tag. You mastered the vintage look with the stamps and soft colors. Missed your art last week - hope you enjoyed your well deserved break in the mountains.
