Lace Rose by Miranda


Hello there,

Today I will show you two cards made with that lovely elegant lace Rose from the new Lace fragments sheet. This sheet is really versatile to use and not only with vintage cards. On the first one I've embossed the flower and border with Wow Bright White. At first the background was a mess, but when I progressed it seems to work out well. I stamped the lace fragment with versamark and added perfect pearls silver pearl. After that I stamped the fragment with black. The paper itself is dark brown from Basic Grey.
Only added some ribbon and lace and pearls for the finishing touch.
The 2nd card has been made also with stamping on Basic Grey paper. I stamped the flower corner with blue and coloured with Derwent soft colour. The lace border is stamped and decoupaged. The lace rose is embossed with  Wow Vanilla White a warmer colour than the bright white. Just simple stamping but these stamps don't need much more I think........









Hope to have inspired you and happy crafting!
Till next time,

  2. Terrific both of them but it is the second that I absolutely love. Very striking use of stamping on background patterned paper & I know what you mean about pushing through the 'it looks a mess' stage.
    Thanks for a treat this dull Monday morning.
