Shabby Vintage

I put this card together in response to NerdyGeekCrafter's YouTube challenge.
Grabbing scraps and pieces I had cut with my cameo, I chose some 
hodge podge flowers and fibers, inks, and scraps that all has a similar color scheme.
Next I added a piece of my home made "washi" tape made to match!
(video for how to make washi is here: CLICK HERE)

A step by step for THIS card can be found here:

What inspires you?!

Hello friends! I found a feather in my front yard this summer that was inspirational to me. I used the colors as my theme for an ATC challenge held over at mybluebike101 on Youtube.
Below you can see how I incorporated several different techniques
to make a phenomenal background for that feather.
It's kind of nature meets shabby chic...  in blue :)

This scrapbook page was created entirely with leftover scraps of paper, stray flowers, and bits of 
lace and things I wasn't using. I store a lot of this kind of stuff in plastic bags.
