Pearls and Lace


The new challenge at Time4Scrap is all about Pearls and Lace and our sponsors for this challenge is The Stamping Chef and Ikesart.  For my card, I chose Jolene from The Stamping Place.

She was a pleasure to color and as usual, I used Copic markers.  The image was then die cut using a Lifestyle Crafts die (Nesting Doily Ovals) and the background was sponged in using Distress Inks (Dusty Concord).  I left the die in place to create the white portion.  Large pearls were adhered around the oval.

The flowers are very tiny and are a low profile die from Sizzix (Forsythia - one of the many flower dies from the Susan Tierney Cockburn.)  I doubled up the blossoms though, to create a two-toned blossom.  Tiny pearls were added to each flower center.

The purple polka dots are an overlay that I've had forever and worked perfectly with the colors I had chosen.  I added a double lace bow and adhered more small pearls along the tails of the bow.

You have two weeks to add your creation to the Time4Scrap Challenge Blog.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.
