Organic and Shabby




Hello, I'm sharing a card I made recently using the Organic die as a background.  I took my inspirations from this tag,   I used Kraft card as I loved the shabby effect after sanding and it was painted with PaperArtsy Concrete.  The flower was cut with watercolour paper and coloured with Abandoned Coral DI and I distressed the edges of the base layer with Abandoned Coral, although it does look quite pale in the photo,  I haven't added a sentiment, yet.

A short post as I desperately need to do some catching up with commenting - DT and my own!
Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend.

That is such a beautiful floral floral die Avril, it's very similar to a PB stamp I have and you certainly achieve a super shabby effect.
