I love the natural look...

...of the nature walk set.  This card was inspired by the cards on this blog, thank you Arlett.  I just love this shabby chic effect, easily achieved by building a background using a sponge and a ruler to apply the ink, and quickly inking stamps with the lovely stampin' write pens for a slightly more watery effect.

The paper in the background of the photo is from the gorgeous Very Vintage set, so pretty, it costs £8.25 for 12 sheets of double sided paper, just contact me to order.

  1. Hi Helen,
    I also love this shabby chic effect and your card is fantastic.
    It's amazing, that you took a ruler for creating your background. This is a very good idea and I will keep it in mind.
    Kind regards,
