Shabby Chic Trio ATC

The theme for this week's challenge on MAMMA, is Playing Cards. I needed to make the challenge/swap fairly easy this week, as i had a bad week last week.

Soooo, what did i do, make 3 ATC's in one. LOL. talk about make even more work for myself.

Anyways here it is (or should I say they)

THE FRONT


ALL THREE
I used plain white lace on the cards, and grunged it up with 3 different coloured ink stamps. The background card was plain cream, and this was inked up also, including the photocopy Playing Card.

The pink lace was inked with 2 colours, and all of it was held together with a rusty brad. This is one of the large brads, used in offices.

I accidentally rusted up a whole box of brads, as i had left the box on my craft table whilst painting, and accidentally spilt water onto them, without knowing.

They say accidents make the best art, well i'm loving these rusty brads now. lol.

I'm still doing the shabby chic/grunge look, and still the pink stays with me. I have quite a few ideas for the challenges in the forthcoming weeks, and i know a lot of the themes will help me break away from the chic/grunge.

Take care everyone

Did I need to do anything more to be entered in the weekly? I haven't received any comments on the post. I'll go to Flickr. Maybe that's where it happens?
