Shabby Chick is what is it all about! Gina K Designs is having a fun challenge called "Shabby Chick". Even the name makes me smile!
You may wonder what that means.... I know I did. Well STV explains the challenge below
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from regular vintage decor; hence the "chic" in the name.
This is the card I made for Stamp TV's Mix It Up Monday Challenge .

Tip of the Day: If the rubber on your rubber stamps are turning white, you can apply a light coat of glycerin over the rubber to avoid ghosting.
This is a close up image of this versatile little stamp. I stamped my focal image with memento Black ink. I stamped a second image and stamped one of the spiral images from "Bring the Bling" with Desert Sand. I colored the dress in light and dark cream using my Copic markers. I then paper pieced the skirt and placed it over my focal image. I Decorated the spiral design with Stickles. I used very little. I once read that "less is more" when using stickles and I am inclined to agree.
