There's a new challenge today at the Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug challenge blog, we've been challenged to use lace and pearls. I thought about this challenge quite some time before making my card. You see, I don't have any lace... A couple thousand yards of ribbon but no lace.
I hope it was okay to be creative. I have one old Stampin' Up! Victorian Lace background stamp that I LOVE and one Spellbinders Eyelet lace border die that I combined on my challenge card and the black half pearls were easy to use.
I really like this Ladybug Vase image from Bug A Boo Stamps and have used it before. I also used the little snail from the Spring Stuff collection and merged both images. I used Copic markers to color the images YR68, YR65, Y15, Y11, T5, T3, T2, W5, W3, E29, E25, E99, E53, BV0000, BV000, BV01. For the flower petals I used YR68, YR65, Y15, Y11 and blended them for a two toned look. I'm sorry I don't remember what the technique is called right now.
I made my own patterned paper again using the Copic bleaching technique. I've discovered a few things to make it a better technique for me too, I'll fill you in about that another day. I outlined the Spellbinders Oval and rectangle dies with a Copic T9 marker. Added a strip of black organdy ribbon to my white panel after embossing it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. My cardstock colors are Via Vellum Black, Discount Cardstock's Cobalt, Neenah Solar White. The happy birthday sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.
I hope you'll join us for our Pearls & Lace challenge at Catch The Bug!
