Coffee and Cream Lace Flower (Posted by Judith)

Hi folks, I love the new Lace Fragments stamp plate that Glenda has just released. I wanted to use the large lace flower as a focal point for one of my samples, and decided to emboss it with a vanilla white embossing powder on a coffee coloured background. I matted this onto a piece of black card. I then stamped one of the lace fragments randomly over a larger piece of card, and again embossed it with the vanilla white embossing powder. I also added a black lace strip at this point which I embossed with clear embossing powder at the same time.

I cut two butterflies from a Crealie die, and stamped them with one of the large lace stamps, and embossed them with clear embossing powder. My card was coloured with Memento Desert Sand, this is a lovely soft brown, a great contrast to the cream and black.

I have decoupaged the flower head, adding three more layers, it's a lovely image, and I think that this will become a well used stamp! Keep popping back to see what the other Design Team members have been up to over the next few days, thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
