I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card for my little boy, using the Ahoy Matey and Matey's Map, so I chose to make it following the guidelines in technique challenge #11, shabby chic.
My first attempt didn't turn out so well. I tried tearing my edges, but I wasn't left with much 'map', so I made another using just the sanding block this time. I tried using all muted colors, but I needed a little bit of red for Valentine's, so I sanded all of my layers and sponged everything heavily with sepia ink.
I don't know if it's exactly shabby chic, but it was lots of fun to make. TFL!
