Archiver's Shabby Chic Card Workshop

Normally when I think of shabby chic I think of pink, lace, ribbon and pearls. My favorite designer in this style is the talented Melissa Phillips. Her blog is pure eye candy and I just love seeing what she will create next.

Like all art, I guess the definition of shabby chic is pretty subjective. Case in point: yesterday I made the four cards below at the Archiver's Shabby Chic Card Workshop. The class description says the cards have an "artsy, vintage look". That part sounds closer to how I would describe this particular style. Anyway, the best part of the class was that we used all Hero Arts stamps (my favorite!) in wood, clear, and cling. And instead of using ink we used paint (Ranger Paint Dabbers)! Great class for only $15!

Without further ado, here are the lovely cards:

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!
