Hello fellow stampers,

Here is another shabby chic window. Well, I reckon it looks like shabby chic!

I used my big bite for the very first time with this card.(Lucky girl I am, received it for my birthday from Cheryll, Grace and Jackie!!!!) A little bit of a learning curve involved and I was very tentative because I just didn't know how much pressure I would need to follow it through. Luckily, you don't need too much, so I am away with it!!!!

The background on the red part of the card was not achieved by the use of stamps. I do have texture stamps, but since I was crimping anyway, I crimped a piece of card and then used it as my stamp. (Read....Too lazy to get out of my chair to get texture stamp!)

Now off to watch the tennis and do some more creating...hopefully!

Fabulous job - I really like the idea of using the crimper for texture. I haven't used mine is ages and this would be a gret reason to pull it out again.
