Good afternoon .......
Have you ever made lace? My Grandma used to make lace and it was stunning! All those gorgeous wooden bobbins with the bright sparkly beads on the ends. Those super fine threads being woven together to make something so delicate and beautiful. She can't make it anymore ... the board is too heavy, her eyesight no longer good enough and her fingers just don't want to co-operate as much. But she is 85! so I think she has done well.
Well I can't make lace ... but I can stamp it! For this card I wanted to use lace but every time I put a piece on there it just didn't look right. So instead I stamped it on! I used a stamp set from Kaisercraft called Tea at Elsie's. I also stamped the 'doily' stamp all over my white doily to make it look a little lacier.
R81, R83, R85 (pink areas) BG93, BG96 (wings) E71, E74, E77 (ruffles on dress) E000, E00, R20 (skin) E31, E33, E35 (hair) and for a bit of bling I used some gold icestickles (glitter glue) on her wings
I have used some gorgeous papers that were sent to me all the way from America! from my lovely craft friend Shirley ... from Simply Stamping With Shirl.
Anyway ... the little one is awake and now going through my craft stash ... pulling everything out saying "I love that Mummy" "I need that Mummy" .... so I will get going :)
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will see you back here tonight with another project.
Big colourful hugs
