Tag Tuesday-Shabby Chic

Tag Tuesday~Shabby Chic

When I think of Shabby Chic, I think of crackled paint and faded flowers and a feminine style. So for the Tag Tuesday challenge I painted a tag with cocoa colored paint, used a crackle product then painted on a creamy acrylic paint. I stamped the flowers stem from the Hero Arts Artistic Borders clear set and added a plethora of Hero Arts paper flowers with gem centers.

Thought for the day: The text on the tag is from a favorite Bible passage in Proverbs 31 which reads; "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
This seems to have more meaning for me the older I get...with each day I'm becoming more "shabby chic"!

Have a blessed day
