Deep Ocaen Challenge 'Ribbons & Lace'

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.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo & shading with Walnut Stain
Cheecks - Aged Mahogony mixed with Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Pants - Aged Mahogony & Tattered Rose
Sleeves, pants stripe & hair bow - Pumice Stone & Black Soot
Shoes - Shaded Lilac
Shading - Pumice Stone & Black Soot
Flowers are by Prima, Kort & Godt & others from Live & Love Crafts. Below shows the LOTV Postcards tucked behind image & my new Magnolia Doo Hickey die that I won as part of my prize for winning the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. I LOVE how you can win prizes from this challenge off merit & not just luck - I do wish other challenges would do this, though I understand it's not the most popular format ;)
Double bow tied in lovely white Stampin Up ribbon & set with white twine bow with Blue Moon silver heart charm. Below shows the banner I made with one of the bottom strips from the Maja papers - I LOVE these strips!!! I cut out 1 sentiment with butterflies either side & trimmed ends into 'v' shape, I then shaped & added pearl brads in this lovely plum colour.
