GingerLoft – Vintage or Distressed

Helloooo! It’s time for a new challenge at GingerLoft and our theme this fortnight is “Vintage or Distressed”.

Here is what I came up with.

DSC03644

The gorgeous image is called “Star gazer”. I have distressed all the layers with French blue and green (colourbox queue). The butterflies are from my SIlhouette stash. I don’t know why but my hand stitching is looking a bit untidy. Not the zigzag one, the zigzag looks incredibly spot on!

I added a few pearls on the lace and one on each butterfly. Finished it off with a fancy bow.

That’s it from my side! Hope to see your vintage/distressed creations at GingerLoft dahlings! tata!

Damn.. Another stunner from you.. Love this one... And I agree with Ujjwal.. Maybe one day I'd learn how to tie a bow like you do.. The stitching add a great look and why r u fretting.. u bother doing real stitching on ur projects.. I'd do faux and beam proudly on my accomplishment... !!
