Flying Unicorns and FabScraps - Shabby Vintage Chic - Featuring the Industrial Chic Collection

Flying Unicorns Oct Kit Features FabScraps

I love the Industrial Chic collection from FabScraps. They created a wonderful blend of elegance paired with edgy charm.    Because there are so many beautiful papers in this collection, I opted to layer and show a few of them. 

FabScraps also has beautiful matching chipboard like the one below.   I simply embossed this with white enamel and added some pink ink to the top. 

The flowers are Prima - of course BUT I have tucked in a few of the paper die cuts from FabScraps as well.  FabScraps does a unique and innovative thing with each collection - they have stamped out matching die cuts that can be used to layer over their chipboard or to be used as stand alone pieces.
I used the flower fie cuts and inked the edges to tuck here and there under the clustering.  Helping to make the clustering a bit fuller.

In this photo, you can see the dimension I have added to the strips.  That's done by adding some cardboard to the backsides.  I like card board when I can use it.  The cardboard provides solid support to the entire dimensional piece versus using a strip of dimension foam tape.   I  will not get the sagging and dips that happen when I use foam tape  and do not cover 100% of the surface area.
