Shabby Chic Thank You - Kiss My Donkey

Hey there! Here is another new release creation I made. This time using the utterly adorable Kiss My Donkey stamp set by Dustin Pike from Whimsy Stamps.

I haven't done a card like this in years. When I saw the image I decided to color it with distress re-inkers. Another thing I haven't done in forever. While I was coloring I thought it would make a nice focal point on a shabby chic card. So I went back to my roots and pulled out all my flowers, pearls and embellies that have been sitting in my drawers untouched for a long time. I had a blast creating this card. I totally forgot how much fun it is distressing all the layers of paper and adding all the embellies. I have to do this more often again. 😍

The papers I used for my card are from Whimsy's Farmhouse 6x6 paper pack that has been released last month. I chose three different designs from the Farmhouse papers and distressed all the edges with a distressing tool. I then layered them on top of each other (I of course cut them all to have different sizes). On top of the last layer I added some cheese cloth and a chiffon ribbon in a matching color. 

After adhering the image on top of a panel of black cardstock. I glued it on to the card front. I then cut out the 'Thank you' word die from black cardstock. Now it was time to add all the pearls, flowers, embellishments and of course the cut out word die. For a final touch I've added some stickles glitter glue to the image.

Distress re-inkers used:
Speckled Egg, Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen,
Pumice Stone, Tattered Rose, Gathered Twigs
