Good morning everyone, hope you are well this Friday morning.
It has been an early start here and the dogs have been walked already. Tomorrow is Clarity Cumbria and I have lots of fun things for the ladies to do...well it keeps them out of mischief!!!!
I will have to borrow Karl's car again , and I am going to change that radio channel before I set off...
My hire car has gone back and my new car has been ordered , but it may take up to 12 weeks to arrive,,,so it's a bit of a nightmare, thank goodness that I have some very lovely and dear friends.
Today is a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog and our theme is
Ribbon and Lace
Here is what I have come up with
I have really enjoyed using the petite Gelli plates , so I thought they would fit this theme so well
I used the round one and added some red ink
Then thanks to Barbara for this technique , I stamped the ink through some Lace
This really does give a lovely effect. It would be great for invitations, and it is so quick for batch cardmaking
Next came this beauty of a rose stamp from Clarity , I stamped it on my design plus an a separate piece of card .
Added some colour, remember to leave those little ares of white
Some matting and layering plus the ribbon
I cut out the flower heads and decoupaged them onto the main image, plus added a little dragonfly from the remountable bugs set.
Some Bakers twine , and a few little leaves , plus those must have sequins and some glossy Accents
And there we have it , my take on ribbon and Lace. I do love to see some white area on a card...
Sometimes we get a bit scared of leaving white , and overdo things and then wish we had walked away...
I would love you to join in the challenge , also go and take a look at the wonderful designs from the rest of the dt... http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
Have a lovely weekend all
Much love and hugs
