Shabby and distressed friend for the Mojo Monday challenge

Tonight's MojoMonday challenge has taken me a little longer than usual to put together. I've been practising some of my distressing and shabby chic techniques ready for the Vintage Vogue class I'm doing on Saturday 8 May.

This is the sketch challenge from MojoMonday - you can choose to do the round, or the square, or both:

Here's my square version:

Stamp sets: Occasional Greetings, Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Versamark, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
DSP: Tea & Crumpets
Punch: Scallop Circle, Eyelet Border
Taffeta Ribbon: Chocolate Chip
Other: Gold EP, Gold Elastic Cord, Latte Designer Button, Cutter Kit

All the layers are distressed using the cutter tool and then sponged with Close to Cocoa ink. The Eyelet Border and the bloom are sponged with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint. I stamped off the Close to Cocoa ink twice before stamping the Vogue frond on the Vanilla card. The sentiment is heat embossed with Gold EP.

The Vintage Vogue class has grown and so I've moved it to another venue instead of my home, as more than 5 around my dining table just gets too cramped. That means that I've got a few more spare places now if you'd like to join us. We'll be at the Tankersley Welfare Hall, a few minutes from Junction 36 of the M1. Just email me if you'd like to book a place.

Thanks for stopping by.
