Thinking of You.................Lavender and Lace at Allsorts Challenges........

Good morning!

Sharing a card that I've made to join in the fun over at the Allsorts Challenge this week. The theme is Lavender and Lace.

I started this piece with just one colour of distress oxide (wilted violet) and then came in with Lulu Lavender Memento ink - just swiping it across the page very lightly.

I then stamped the lovely lady (Bee Crafty) using my misti (stamping it once with the distress oxide ink (wilted violet) and then over the top with milled lavender distress ink to give me some definition. I have cut out sections of her dress so that I could pop some beautiful lavender coloured lace through it to enhance her dress and "bring her to life".

I have sponged the milled lavender distress ink through several stencils to build up that background and I have also used the wilted violet oxide through some of them too.

Thinking of you has ben stamped in the same way using the two inks.

Some Rubber Dance stamps are on there too and have been coloured in with a white pen.

Mat and layered and have added some lace trim down one edge, the back mat I have coloured with the lulu lavender Memento ink and a sponge.

All mounted on to an 8 x 8 white card blank to give it a clean feeling for lavender and lace.

I hope you like this piece. I have actually produced two pieces with this stamp, similar in design so I'll share the other one with you next week - you'll have to wait 'til then!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Leanne xx
