Hippity Hoppity - Vintage Shabby Chic Piecing
Hope you like today's creation - I really like how it turned out. With all the snow and frigid temperatures in the midwest, I've been dying for spring to arrive. One of the challenges I am entering this cutie in is for a Folk Art Easter item. Hopefully it will pass, it is a little more vintage, shabby chic but I just love the color scheme! Even though I made her as a card, I think she would be great on a spring scrapbook layout as well. I will be selling her on Ebay in the Age Before Beauty Challenge starting on February 1. So be sure to pop on over to see her status next week or bid on her yourself! Hopefully she will find a nice home! I am also entering her in this week's Basic Grey challenge. This week's challenge was to create an card using Basic Grey papers and needed to include an animal. Wish me luck!
The girl was cut with my cricut and hand layered and pieced with different textiles, Basic Grey & Vintage papers, and embellishments. Did you notice the vintage lace petticoat and apron? I think they are my favorite parts - well and the cute pearly headband.
I can't wait to create another vintage piecing and hope you enjoyed her. Be sure to leave a comment with your thoughts and any questions!
