'Lets Get Shabby' Challenge #43

Let's Get Shabby

Here's my DT sample!

I was totally inspired by the background and dress!  So painted my background onto white cardstock, and recreated the dress with a vintage doily.... with little print from a vintage romance novel both using the print in the usual torn out fashion and gluing it into the background and peeling it away.

 Here's the inspiration photo to interpret how you like!

Here's what you will win!
One vintage crochet doily about 2ft long
It has one little hole in the middle - but think of the cutting, dying,  misting possibilities!

Make sure you


as we would love to see you there!
