Shabby Chic with a Twist

Rope Player Ruth -Digi Image Created by JenLee- DigiStamps4Joy
Hello My Lovelies...
I am on a Shabby Chic roll with a fun twist well I guess you can call this Southwestern Chic as I use some of my recycled cardboard strip paper roses to showcase 'Rope Player Ruth' Digital image created by JenLee available in the DigiStamps4Joy Shop. I colored her with Faber-Castell Pencils and touches of white and blue gel pens. You can learn how to make my Paper Roses on my Blog post. I pulled out some of my hoarded stash of  crafty things of  blues some being my Martha Stewart air dry clay silicone mold designs. I love these and make so many in advance before the clay dries in my sealed containers(done that before)...also if you want a tip on changing the color of air dry clay you can check out my Tips Tricks and Techniques posting.  My beautiful blue butterflies are actually a border from K & Company that are wonderfully made so I could fuzzy cut individually without distorting the shapes.  My blue string and some of my multitude of various blues design papers and bling. 
I embossed the brown Core'dinations Design Paper with an Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug/Acanthus folder, sanded it...topped it with a couple of Spellbinders Nestabilities & Shapebilities Timeless Rectangle, Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight and the leafs from Bitty Blossoms. Extra embellishments are Joanna Sheen Curly Flourish and Spring Blossom, Recollections bling and blue string from my stash. Distressed with brown Staz On, Stampendous Embossing Powder/Shabby Blue, Ranger Liquid Pearls, Blue stickles.
