Shabby Mushroom Elf

Hello and welcome to another miserable Wednesday. To brighten up your day we do have a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers and this time we are going with the theme Shabby Chic and we are sponsored by the lovely Fabrika Fantasy . I used Mushroom Elf to create this card:

I used a lilac card blank from The Works. Orange core'dinations card was embossed with a recent embossing folder free with Quick Cards Made Easy magazine and then the centre was die-cut with the X-cut large labels die of the next size up from that used to cut the image. The centre strip was cut away to allow the base card to come through more. The image was coloured with Promarkers and edged with glitter glue. Finally I topped the card with hessian style flowers and gems, as well as a strip of lace from one of the ATC exchanges.

Promarkers used - Dusky Pink; Satin; Grey Squirrel ltd; Frosted Leaf ltd; Pastel Beige; Fresh Meadow ltd; Pear Green; Forest Green; Polar Blue ltd; Cobalt Blue; Sandstone; Honeycombl Cinnamon; Budding Rose ltd; Dusky Rose; Antique Pink

Do also check out Fabrika Fantasy's own challenge blog: - current theme of add a heart.

I tried to make it shabby with the pale colours, distressed embossing, lace effects, but this is not one of my strong areas (just in case you couldn't tell lol).
