Shabby Chic Skater

Good Morning!  Time for another Catch the Bug challenge.  The challenge is distressed/shabby chic — definitely a challenge for me!  The easiest part was deciding what image to use.  The Sunbonnets just scream shabby chic (or at least vintage) to me. 

I guess I was in a winter mindset still from the Christmas in July festivities and went with the fancy sunbonnet winter.  For some reason, I had different purples in my head when I colored this to what the paper choices were — and I was thinking of these papers.  Anyway, I went with Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather, some lace, some pearls and I think those things add up to shabby chic.  LOL!  One thing that always sticks in my head is using vanilla or cream cardstock for distressed or shabby chic projects.  Of course, I forgot about that when I printed so to soften the white, I sponged some Pale Plum around the skater.  Hope this passes the test!

We’d love to have you play along with us — just link your NEW project up to the CtB blog with a DIRECT LINK to your blog for a chance to win!
