Shabby Thoughts

Hello there 🙂 I hope everyone is staying safe, and doing what they can to protect others, all while trying to remain sane!! I’m sure I’m not the only one that is SO done with the pandemic and all that it’s brought! Our challenge theme for this month at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group is “Remembrance/Thinking of You/Thanksgiving”. All of these take on new meaning in these uncertain times.

For my first DT inspiration this month, I used Peony Kimono Maiden, to make a shabby chic Thinking of You card. I used my Copics to color this beautiful image up, then stamped the sentiment and distressed and inked the edges.

I found a pretty piece of patterned paper in my stash, that went beautifully with the subdued colors of the image. I layered this up with some coordinating solid color cardstock, all of which I’d distressed and inked. I tucked in 2 doilies before attaching the image. A bow, tied with crinkle ribbon from DL Art, and some pearls finish my card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
