How it's made
For my piece I decided to use cardboard as a substrate (goes with whole shabby concept) and used various vintage lace, ribbons, fabrics and fibers. Since everything was not the same color and I wanted everything to look unified, so I lightly gessoed everything and lightly colored the cardboard, lace, fabric and embellishments with Lindy's Stamp Gang Bronze and Silver Moon Shadow Sprays; they are vintage shimmers; also, used Salt Water Taffy, Autumn Maple Crimson, and Cosmopolitan Pink Starburst Sprays to give it the pale pink look. The stitched ribbon, is a real silk ribbon, that I stitched using embroidery thread. The ribbon is very thin and delicate; using glue stains and destroys the ribbon. So I added a piece of card stock paper to the back of the ribbon and stitched along with the ribbon, then glued the piece to the substrate, looks seamless, I thought. Hope you like my Shabby project.
