I would like to share this card which is quite unusual for me. I am not ordinarily one for using pink and especially bright pink, but I do love it when combined with black and grey, I think it makes for quite a dramatic look.
I started with the stamped panels which I used a variety of stamps, including a butterfly, flower, harlequin, flourish and a text stamp and created a background by overstamping and masking. The background was then cut into 3 equal sections and shuffled before matting on to the pink layer on the white base card.
The crochet lace was made using a grey cotton thread and was made larger than the width of the card. By pinning it into shape and then ironing it with starch it becomes a much more dense piece of lace which holds it shape and now fits on the card perfectly over the stamped panels.
I finished the card with an assortment of flowers which were stamped and embossed onto a piece of card I had watercoloured to co-ordinate and added some black foam flourishes using a Sizzix die for added texture and interest.
All for now.
