Hi there & today it's time for another challenge over at Deep Ocean challenge. This week we'd like to see your Ribbons & Lace creations, we have a great sponser prize from LOTV so be sure to pop over to the challenge blog using the link above & enter your best projects!
For my card I used my new Saturated Canary stamp & these drop dead gorgeous papers from the new Maja Design Vintage Spring collection.
Paper edges have been inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink using a blending tool, then stiched on the machine. I added 2 ripped sections so I could 'hide' lace underneath, loving this look at the mo!
I cut the stamped & coloured image out using the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die, I then die cut the shape from lilac Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock & layered the 2 together with cheese cloth underneath. The postacards are by LOTV I stamped in black ink from other Maja papers from the Vintage Spring collection & added under the image topper also on cheese cloth for a shabby feel. The top oval has Tim Holtz, LOTV & HOTP Postcard stamps in Shaded Lilac, Victorian Velvet & Pumice Stone, I then added shabby white Frantage & set with heat tool.
