Ribbons and lace

Good afternoon everyone

Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday. I am still trying to get back in the swing of being back at work and the children being back at school. The new job went well and I am looking forward to the rest of the term. Posting may be a little bit hit and miss from now on but I'll try and post as regularly as I can.

The new challenge for September at Lili of the Valley is "ribbon and lace" and here is the card I have made - 

The image is from Lili of the Valley and is called Dainty dancer (ST286) and has been coloured with the following Promarkers - 

  • skin - almond, putty, dusky pink and sunkissed pink
  • ballet dress and shoes - pastel blue, arctic blue, sky blue, ice grey 1 and ice grey 2
  • tights - vanilla and pastel yellow
  • stars - gold
  • hair - burnt umber, walnut and cocoa
  • sky - powder blue
  • shadow - ice grey 1
The image has been cut out using Spellbinder's oval nestie, inked whilst still in the die with tumbles glass distress ink and matted onto a larger oval nestie. I then pleated lace around the oval. It was a bit fiddly but I like the finished effect. The papers I have used are also from Lili of the Valley and are called Petal fresh. I added some ribbon from my stash and made a bow which I added to the side of the image. I also added a little wooden heart button underneath the bow. I then inked some cream flowers with tumbled glass distress ink and added them to the card as shown. All the flowers, lace and button are from The Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - 

Thank you for stopping by.
