The Shabby Tea Room - Week #28

Monday, September 20, 2010

Ok, I have a bit of news (I've been sitting on this one for a while!!) I'm now officially a "Shabby Girl"!! I'm so delighted to be part of the Shabby Tea Room Design Team, they're all such talented ladies! I'm a huge fan of The Shabby Tea Room and I love their weekly challenges. Oh AND there's another new DT member over at The Shabby Tea Room, Pattie Goldman, her work is beautiful!! This week's challenge is titled School Days, Cathy is our host and this is the photo inspiration. The challenge is to design a card or project with a school theme.

This week's sponsor is the Digi Doodles Shop.

The Design Team were provided with some images to play with from The Digi Doodle Shop. I used the Hoot Owl image for my card, it was such a cute image to work with. I really had fun coloring it!

I used Creative Inspirations Paint in Chocolate, Beige, Ivory, Tanzanite and Sunshine to color the Owl image. The cute apples paper is a digi paper from the Back to School kit by MKC at the Digichick. I added some Garnet Creative Inspirations Paint along the edges of the paper.

I stamped the sentiment from Half Pint Heros by Waltzingmouse Stamps in Moonlight White on some black card. The card base is covered in brown paper. I added a little stitching and some raffia to finish things off. Now pop along and see what the rest of the "Shabby Girls" have created. You will enjoy!
