Corrosive Challenge # 150 - Not Too Shabby

Welcome to another Sunday Corrosive Challenge! This week is all about Shabby Chic or Vintage themed projects. Our sponsor for this week is Tickled Pinks Stamps. These images are so diverse, you can really find just about anything you would want here. I fell in love (pun intended he he) with this image, Lil Greek Gods Lolita Aphrodite Willow.  I did do a little editing and removed the bird.  This was gifted to my Stepmother, for both her Birthday and Mother's Day which both fall in May (Mirthday Card?  Bimother's Day?)  She is a lovely, caring, thoughtful, smart woman, and I am very lucky to have been blessed with her for a Stepmother.  I always think of the color blue when I think of her so that was my starting point.  The sketch is # 182 from Sketch Saturday :
This was a daunting one for me for some reason.  I had the image colored, the papers and everything picked out for at least a month, and it just sat there taunting me.  I finally dove in and got it together, and I love how it came out.  To give it a shabby feel, I distressed all the edges with scissors, and sponged a little brown ink on the edges of the image and the sentiment.  The sentiment is computer generated, using the Glider Girls font from Free Scrapbook Fonts .

Papers:  Little Yellow Bicycle:  Vintage - "Bliss" and "Meet me in the meadow"
Embellishments:  Mark Richards Mosaic crystal stickers, Queen & Co pearls, Combo of Recollections and Wild Orchid flowers.  
Thanks for stopping by, and come and get your vintage on over at The Corrosive Challenge.  Can't wait to see all your creations.

I'm sorry she taunted you for a month, but the results are stunning! I love your coloring - the folds in her cape look awesome! The papers are perfect for this and the distressing is great! Plus you know how much I love flowers! Yours are fab! :)
