Chic but Shabby................


Welcome to a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge and a new discount code for you to grab on the main challenge blog, where there is a fantastic discount today!

The easiest way to keep up with all things POLKADOODLES is sign up to the newsletter which you can do here.

This week the design team were asked to think of the theme 'Shabby Chic' - so I had to dig deep. I am not good at shabby chic, but thankfully for you, there are some amazingly shabby girls on our design team.............I jest of course.

I decided that the new collection of 'Ruby' was the best way to go (and I am not going to lie, easiest also).

I wanted to use 'Ruby Sweet', you can get her here as the black and white digi or as a precolured digi.

I made a 6x6 card using papers from the Lil Miss Sugarpops 1 Collection, which you can see here and here

I coloured Ruby with my copic markers:
Skin: E50, E51, E21
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Dress: RV11, RV32, V95

I added some lace and flowers as I am pretty sure that adding lace makes anything shabby chic. I also distressed the edges of my papers because I am also sure that this is a requirement to fit into the niche of shabby chic.

So there you have it, my take on shabby chic!
