Today I have a video on YouTube for you to see how this card was put together. The list of supplies is at the bottom of the page but I also used some dried flowers that smell lovely and add a really special touch to the card
The video is titled Shabby Chic - Lilac and Lemon and I hope it gives you some ideas of how you might like to make your own cards in this style. I have added lots of "Frippery" to this design and used a really pale lemon teamed with the lilac.
Painting the flowers adds to the vintage look and you can use paint or Gesso to get the whiteness onto them with a paint brush.
The flowers/Lace/Cameo are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and they have some wonderful products for you to view.
New Web Page
Over on my website I have created a special page that I will add all these Shabby Chic videos to as I go along so that they can all be accessed in one place whenever you need to browse.
At the moment there are two but as each card is made and filmed it will be added to the page.
It will be permanently in the NavBar on the left of each website page and the individual photographs on that page are clickable links. Click and open them to go directly to my You Tube channel with the tutorials.
It is titled Shabby Chic
More tomorrow ...
