PENNY BLACK CHALLENGE


This week over at Penny Black the challenge is to use lace & pearls.... well I can use the pearls no problem but to be honest I am so not a lace person... this did prove to be a little difficult for me but finally I made it there... decided that if I kept the style simple it may help a little.
Just for a change I decided to do a long thin card onto which I layered some lovely Efco paper. Next up I wrapped some lace around a piece of blue card & attached onto the centre of the card. Used my stamp to create 9 flower heads which were then water coloured using Sakura Glaze Pens and slightly curled before attaching to the card using silicone glue... now to complete the challenge I added some pearls to the centre of the flowers... phhheeeewwww. so glad that one's done now as it sure was a challenge for me...
See you all again soon
Happy crafting

Hi Lorraine, sorry I've not been over in a while! This is such a pretty card, I love how you've used just the flower head of the stamp on this card! Gorgeous colours too! Thanks for joining in with the Penny Black challenge!
