Black Lace


Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

Well with one thing an another my plans for crafting went right out the window.  Everything I touched yesterday ended up in the bin.  Good job I had this card to show you which I made a few days ago.

The Topper is a mixture of stamps from Kaiser Crafts, Clarity Stamps, Creative Expressions Swirls, Freebies from a magazine and the birds are from a Tim Holtz selection of stamps.



Card base is A4 card cut down to measure 24 x 21 cm pearlescent cream
First layer is yellow gold pearlescent card I have cut the paisley paper at an angle and placed over the top half of the first layer but before layering this down I added black lace across the diagonal edge.
The topper has been brayered using Adirondak Butterscotch..I have used Memento ink to stamp the silhouette images and matted this onto black card.  
To finish off I added black swirl gems and gems to the bottom corners.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxxx

A fabulous card Linda, love the layout and the touch of lace. It's frustrating isn't it when things don't go to plan and they end up in the bin. Best way is to forget about it and then try on another day and it will probably go without a hitch x

Fab card Linda.

I had one of those days last week when everything I did ended up in the bin. I just wish we knew when we were going to have them before we had them, then we could spend the time making embellies instead.

Really stunning hun, I love the shimmer and the lace, I bought myself that kaiser Craft lamp post stamp before christmas because I thought it was gorgeous and haven't gotten around to using it yet, I love the scene you built with it

Beautiful card Linda. I love the shimmer on the card. I'm glad its just not me that has days like that. I had to make a 21st card yesterday for my son to give to one of his pals. I knew what I wanted to make but I just couldn't get it to look good, so I ended up making one like one I had made previously. I just had to make sure that the two lads weren't going to be together when the card was opened!! Plus I wasn't feeling very well yesterday so the pressure was on. I managed it in the end. Good luck with the challenges. Wendy xx
