Change in style ....

Today I've been crafting outside of my comfort zone trying out a new style.  I'm not sure what you would call the style - Vintage, Steam Punk, Shabby Chic or just plain shabby!!  I wanted to try something different and this sure is different.  I'm not sure what I think of the final card but thought I would share it with the world to see what kind of response it provokes.


It certainly looks distressed!  A bit like I felt when I was making it!!

The challenge over at retro sketches involves the following sketch:

As my card is based around a tag I am going to enter into the challenge.

If you've popped over for a peak I would love to know what you think - please leave a comment I love to read them all.

  5. Hi - it is always daunting to tackle a different style or technique. i think you have done a great job here. Sometimes I'm put off the shabby chic style because it seems so fussy but your tag is lovely feminine without being fussy or cutesy :-)
