Waltzing Mouse sketch #54

Today I prepared a different kind of card than the ones I was making last week... More towards shabby chic I think/hope?

For the card I made two windows, and the hearts can turn around (I have the same hearts on the other side)... Here's a photo of the card open, so that you may understand a bit better what I mean...

I've been meaning to try this window for quite some time now, and as soon as I saw the latest sketch on Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge blog it was the first thing that came to my mind ;o)

So... this card is for the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #54 with the following sketch:

Waltzing Mouse has some incredible stamps that I use quite often. Although shabby chic is not a style I have used often, these stamps make me want to try shabby chic! I don't have many papers I could use for a shabby chic look, so instead I used Distress Inks to colour white and off-white cardstock that I had.

Lately I'm falling in love with Distress Inks, they are so versatile! You can use them for stamping, watercolouring... or to kind of prepare your own background papers as I did in this case. Monochrome or multicolour, with or without motifs... with Distress Inks, blending tool and daubers you can make so many things.

I hope you like it!
