Sunday Stampers - Lace

Finished my entry for the SS challenge quite early this week - early for me anyway ;)  The theme this week is lace.  If you've never had a go but enjoy doing challenges why not pop over to Hel's and then give it a go.  So long as you add some stamping you can do anything you like :) I've use a mini canvas which I painted with a mixture of white acrylic paint and mica powder.  I stencilled the spots on uisng Golden heavy gel medium coloured with mica powder (Golden is the brand name).  I used a rollagraph stamp at the top and text stamp in the centre and while drying the ink the paint bubbled a bit but that's fine.  I drew the flowers myself and cut them out of the same piece of 'Whitewash core'dinations' cardstock but flipped one piece over and embossed both using a Cuttlebug folder and finally added some leaves and lace ribbon each end :)

Fabulous work ... I have never tried a rollagraph ... perhaps I should add it to my list :0)

Ooh is very pretty. I love the way you describe what you did - as if it all flows and was part of the plan. Me - I'm emptying cupboards to find one more thing, asking everyone who isn't interested if I've over done it, and generally making nothing but mud pies.

Ah, in light of Julia's comment I feel it incumbent upon me to put the record straight. It took many hours and many mistakes/mishaps along the way before completing the canvas! I do sometimes say what's gone wrong but at other times the posts would be faaar too long if I described all that went wrong along the way LOL

HiAnne
No I didn't think that just meant I left these ones as they weren't as bad as the others I had-one said I must be on drugs!
