shabby birthday

Happy Birthday Shabby Damask

I was playing around with crazy ideas in my head one day, and this was the result. Wanting a shabby look, without having to do tons of distressing and what not, I decided to not completely ink up my Damask Designs images. It turned out pretty cool. And really “missing” a spot on the stamp, left me a perfect spot for the sentiment.

Did you have a wonderful weekend? I hope so!! thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Papertrey Ink-Damask Designs), Cardstock (Prism-Intense Kiwi, oh how I will miss thee…), Patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye), Ink (Stewart Superior Palette Beaux Arts Blue, Landscape), Ribbon (American Crafts), Lace (Wright’s), Twine (May Arts), Button (Blumenthal Lansing)
