Well done Lorraine and if you would like to email The Paper Shelter directly, you will find the email elf on the Challenge blogsite on the left handside, they will sort out your image for you.
And now for this fortnights Challenge we want to see "Lace" on your cards and I know if your anything like myself youve got lots of bits and bobs in your stash so start looking ladies and creating. We are of course are being sponsered by The Paper Shelter.
They are offering a fabulous prize of $20 but of course thats providing youve used one of their products on your card, but even if you havent they will still give your 3 digi images of your own choice. I must admit their images, papers and accessories are really good value and quite stunning so its worth a trip to The Paper Shelter Website to see whats exactly on offer, and they are always adding to their library.
And now back to my card for this Challenge.
For my image I chose this "Little Dressmaker" and you will find her here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out and used the die again to draw around to create the mount for it out of pink card. The sentiment is one I found on the internet and felt it went so well with the image this has also been mounted onto pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and for my papers I have used "The Happy Couple" and you will find them here. The first paper is a very pretty rose pattern on a pink background and on top I have used a second mount with another of the same papers a pretty flowered swirly looking pattern with a pink satin ribbon thats been wrapped around it, before sticking it to the base mount I have run two strips of lace down each sides and then stuck it down to the left of my card.
The mounted image was then positioned towards the right with the sentiment at the bottom on the left. To finish of Ive created a flower spray with several sized roses a pearl spray in the corner at the top on the left, these were stuck on top of some punched out rose leaves with some silicone glue.
Now that youve seen my card please do go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented "A" Team have created for you and perhaps it will inspire you to take part in this "The Lace Look" Challenge.
