Hello & welcome to our 2nd challenge! A Big thank you to everyone who took part last week, your work was beautiful! This week's challenge is.... 'Lace it up'. Use some lace on your work, paper lace, real laces or perhaps stamped lace. Remember you can make a card, tag, scrapbook page, ATC, or fatpage (4x4). If you dont have a blog email your creations to, firstname.lastname@example.org The design team has been busy again and have made a few ideas for you. We really enjoyed working with lace it's so pretty! Have fun with the challenge.

I have used a green gingham backing paper, the middle piece of card has been stamped with a Fine Lace stamp using an ink pad as close to the colour of the card as possible for a tone on tone look. The Bouquet of Roses has been coloured with Copic Marker pens and mounted 3D over an oval centre. I have embellished the corner of the card and the bouquet ribbon with an oddment of lace.
I used a piece of double-sided sticky paper,cut to size and stuck on the left hand side of my card. I then laid a piece of lace onto it and poured green glitter on, shaking off the excess. I then took the lace off, and applied white glitter to the sticky bits where the green wasn't! I then stamped and water coloured an image of a lady, and matted and layered it on to the card. Finally I stamped a message and punched out 2 flowers and secured them with brads either side of it.
I have gone for a baby boy theme for my ATC. I started by mounting white paper onto blue card stock, then created a background using distress ink pads, colors: faded jeans and antique linen. I then drew a freehand babies pram onto acetate with black Aqua Glass outliner. I attached the acetate over my distressed background and then added a strip of K & Co Paper Lace ribbon (distressed with antique linen and vintage photo ink pads). I finished off by embellishing with violet ribbon & crystal sticker pearls.
